Old Louisville Ghost Tour as Recommended by The New York Times

82 reviews
Tours daily from March 15 through November 15; limited dates in the off-season!<br><br>The fascinating historic district known as Old Louisville has gained national exposure because of its impressive Victorian mansions and quirky residents. Developed in the 1880s and 1890s, it attracted the Derby City's bourbon barons, racetrack royalty, and titans of tobacco. This narrated walk is based on books by storyteller David Dominé, who often shows up to guide groups himself. The tales shared involve personal experiences and neighborhood gossip. The New York Times recommends a tour with him as the first thing not to miss during a visitor's "36 Hours in Louisville." <br><br>Specializing in "America's Most Haunted Neighborhood," we depart from the corner of Fourth and Ormsby, at the transitional edge of the neighborhood. If you love old architecture and spooky history, this is the tour for you! If you do not like an up-and-coming neighborhood with a diverse racial make up, this tour is not for you!

Make sure to do the tour that’s included with your ticket price. They take you to the track and show you the horse staging area. Great museum with interactive exhibits.

Thee Derby museum is one of the most impressive museums we have ever visited. Very detailed information about the history of the race, fashion, traditions and rituals. The place has everything you need to learn about race horses, breeding and the training that goes into preparing those beautiful creatures for racing. Our guide was very enthusiastic. The movie in the grand room is a must.

We took an Uber for the tour and when we were checking in for the it they told us that they were booked and that this company's schedule was not the same as theirs. We did walk around the museum but that was it. Bottom line is this was a disappointing waste of time and money. I recommend scheduling through the Derby museum directly.

This booking started off in the wrong foot because of errors due to TRIPADVISOR! Booked a a tour for this museum thru TripAdvisor for an 11;30am tour. Reached the destination only to be told that the museum was already booked for that time and Tripadvisor should not have advertised timed slots for their tours. Manager had to call TripAdvisor directly and find out why they were advertising this option when they were NOT ready to launch that option. Tours were booked solid and they could not accommodate us until 3hrs later which did not work for our schedule. Staff were very nice. Had to rebook for the following day. Well worth the trip back. Very informative and captivating tour. Exhibits were great for all ages. COVID restrictions m/precautions were being followed.

One of the highlights of my trip to Louisville. The employees here are so nice and friendly. The gift shop is fun (bought two hats from last year's Derby on the cheap). I enjoyed reading the purse amounts for each race. The Greatest Race in the great hall was spectacular and shouldn't be missed
