Old Louisville Ghost Tour as Recommended by The New York Times

50 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!

Smaller museum in clean, modern digs. The staff are super nice and they are taking the utmost precautions during COVID 19. Modern art. When I went, they had a very good exhibit on southern artists featured in the book “Walks to the Paradise Garden.” They also had an exhibit from a local Louisville artist. Neat gift shop with lots of upscale fare. In the past they had a Picasso exhibit and other thoughtfully, well curated shows. This is a great museum to see over an hour or an hour and a half. It’s not overwhelming and worth a stop. You may see things here that you won’t see other places.

Over the years the KMAC has been free, however, a major showing of a number of Picasso’s drawings and ceramics from 1946-1953 requires a fee. At $9 per adult and $6 for seniors and military folks it’s a small price to pay to see an exhibit that has never been seen in the U.S. It’s well worth the time to come visit to see this once in a lifetime exhibit here in Louisville. And don’t forget there’s the student exhibit on the first floor plus another artist exhibit on the third floor. Remember, this area of West Main Street has the second most concentrated cast iron facades in the U.S. Great art and great architecture is hard to beat.

My husband visited KMAC today specifically to see the Picasso exhibit. It was wonderful! It is so amazing to be able to experience Picasso in Louisville. Thank you KMAC! We also enjoyed the other exhibits and gift shop. I was amazed at all of the artwork provided by local school students. There is a lot of talent in the Louisville area. EVERYONE should see the Picasso exhibit while it is still at KMAC.

BKMAC is a beautiful space in a renovated historic iron fronted mercantile building. The exhibits were over the top and FREE. The staff were helpful and engaging. I also dropped a few dollars in the fun gift shop.

My 15 year old daughter and I went to view the Picasso event. We had the best time! The art was amazing and the staff were friendly. We even managed to get some Christmas shopping done. This event is a must see! So thankful we have a place to showcase so many wonderful artists.
