Housed in an old 1930 vintage post office. A large number of interesting items with an informed staff. Lots of Early Kentucky and Elizabethtown items. A must visit if you are interested in local history. It is free but if you visit drop something in the donation box.

A wonderful, cozy place with in-depth historical and genealogical information gems, some available to copy and some to purchase. Staff are knowledgeable, supportive, and most creative in helping you to find the history you seek. Much of this information is not digitized, so visiting this museum opens your eyes to the rich, diverse history of this area that was an indigenous sacred place, torn during the Civil War, experienced strife due to Ft. Knox soldiers, housed the grandest Coca-Cola museum, etc.

Hardin County History Museum is a real gem. It is located in what was the Post Office when I was a girl. The displays bring back such wonderful memories, and I have learned oh, so much history that I didn't know before visiting here. The staff is wonderful. Especially Elvin Smith, Jr., a lifelong friend, who gives of his time, energy, knowledge, and amazing photographs for the benefit of others. I try to stop in every time I am "back home" in E'town.

What a way to spend a free day with your kids, excellent museum.... Great place to take the kids to learn about Hardin County and Kentucky and yes it is FREE.... So there is no reason to check out this gem hiding in the ruff in Elizabethtown Kentucky... Close to little shops to round off your day ENJOY...
