“Museum Row Good Stop in Bardstown”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

There are 5 museums all together. You go into the Civil War Museum and you pay your admission for all museums (I think low cost compared to other admission prices).

First we visited the village. I love places like these old villages and this village was small but very nice. The buildings were a nice variety so it looked like a real village. Some buildings really historical for the area, too.

The Civil War Museum had a lot of artifacts nicely displayed

The wildlife museum was awesome! So many animals nicely displayed.

Two other museums a short walk away was nice. One full of military items for all the wars Civil War to the present. The womens museum did not have a lot of artifacts but tell stories more than anything. This museum must be pretty new.

We enjoyed all of the museums and advise making sure you have extra batteries. You can and will take many photos in all of these museums.

“A good learning experience”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We visited the Civil War Museum on the 4th of July and were pleasantly surprised that it was open. Good exhibits, accompanied by explanations that were educational. The young man at the desk was very friendly and extremely helpful with information.

“My whole family enjoyed this trip .... All ages”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

A whole town was created here....a replica of the real way of life for pioneering families. Excellent, excellent...the nature museum...awesome! I'd rather see animals stuffed rather than in zoos anyway, and this is the place to go for that! What a collection. Even the collection of civil war artifacts. Incredible!

“Surprising collection”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

The artifacts and displays here are very interesting. The exhibits cover the action of the Civil War in the west very thoroughly.
