“Enjoyable”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We went through the museum after touring Kentucky Horse Park. It was nice, but I wouldn't make a trip specifically to go to this museum since there aren't that many exhibits. What is there is well done, but just not enough to see.

“A BLUE RIBBON MUSEUM”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

This museum doesn't take a lot of time; however, there are a lot of hands on exhibits. There is a fantastic gift shop. The history of so many historical horse events make it so interesting. This is definitely an interesting museum to visit before you enter the Kentucky Horse Park.

“Too Expensive”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

It costs $3 to park and then $16 to enter pp. This is not a top tier attraction and is way over priced in our opinion.

A great compliment to the Horse Park offering the history of the Saddlebred as well as virtual saddlebred rides for young and old! My daughter's favorite thing to do at the horse park.
