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!

This was the start of our day and it allowed us to have a background history of the area. Enjoyed the Louis & Clark area, the Bourbon history and the bottles of old bourbon to see. Very nicely put together.

Lots of small exhibits in this museum but nothing really in-depth except for the louis and clark expedition. Lots of daily events so check with them ahead of time on when the free tours are. The louis and clark experience and the bourbon exhibit were definitely the best curated. The women's suffrage movement was also good. Everything else seems a bit random like the miniatures collection and that set of samurai armor.

The collection of items has been changed to provide an experience of Kentucky History. The building itself dates back to the steamboat era of commerce on the inland waterways of the country. Tobacco was stored in wooden barrels in the building. There is much more to learn about the building's rich history by going through the museum.

We went a few years ago and I recall it being all about guns. Now they have branched out to a lot of other things that make it more interesting. We had a good tour.

There is parking behind the building or you can park at any number of paid parking lots in the nearby area. Admission is reasonable. There are three floors of exhibits ranging from early inhabitants to famous Kentuckians, to bourbon, to Corvettes. And they offer a variety of short lectures at various spots in the museum - I attended one about the origins of the Teddy Bear that lasted around 20 minutes. They also have bourbon taste testings at various times. Large gift shop for all of your Ky needs!
