Take “A Kentucky Journey” and find your place in our story.

From Boone to baseball bats, horse racing to sporty cars, Kentucky’s impact is wide. Take a 12,000-year “journey” with us from prehistoric times to the modern day and learn how Kentucky came to be part of the U.S. consciousness. You’ll:

  • Experience wartime and peace.
  • Meet free people and the enslaved, private citizens and public figures.
  • See items that tell of Kentucky’s most famous – and infamous – citizens: the mirror that hung in Lexington madam Belle Brezing’s parlor; the coat Gov. William Goebel wore the day of his assassination; the pocket watch Abraham Lincoln carried in 1860.
  • Discover the things that illustrate everyday life for countless Kentuckians who helped set the Commonwealth’s course: handmade quilts that women carefully stitched to provide warmth for their families; hand-crafted furniture which stored the family treasures; tools of their trades.

No matter where you’re from, we’re confident you have a Kentucky connection. Take the “journey” and find yours.
