Facilities for sandwiches, clean restrooms, maps and area information, and beautiful Kentucky crafts are here. You could do a lot of gift shopping here, as well as get a bite to eat. Really clean and friendly people too!

There are no outside exhibits. It's all indoors. Only service animals allowed. We left our dog in the car listening to his favorite music with the a/c on so he would comfortable. Best to leave a note inside the window too.
