I went one time years ago and would not recommend buying a ticket. Now if you go to the Kentucky Horse Park, you usually get a free ticket. It is still not worth it unless you like Saddlebreds.

This was a cute museum after visiting the Kentucky horse park. Lots of photos, trophies, a film area, and children's exploration room.
