Kentucky Museum

The Kentucky Museum is located in the Kentucky Building on the campus of Western Kentucky University. The Museum houses six major permanent exhibits and several changing exhibits. There is a variety of partnerships, services, opportunities, workshops, camps and other outreach provided to the public each year. In addition, the Museum works closely with WKU students and faculty to enhance instruction through a variety of tours, activities and programs. The Museum also works with area K-12 teachers offering both tours and other educational resources. Make plans to visit the Kentucky Museum. Visitor parking is available both next to the Museum and across Kentucky Street. Visitors sign a parking log at the lobby front desk.
