They're still building their collection, but this facility is certainly worth the visit for someone interested in Central Kentucky history. Collections dating back to Hardin County's earliest days. And there's no admission charge

This building is packed with artifacts and displays relating to Elizabethtown, Kentucky from its earliest years to the present. The staff was very welcoming and eager to answer any of our questions, and admission is free. Well worth your time.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. So many artifacts and pictures of Kentucky history and Lincoln. A must see is the replica of a general store and it's merchandise. A true marvel!

Saw this museum on the History channel so we decided to pay it a visit. Grandson really enjoyed the history. Staff was great, love the log cabin.

This is a very small museum that has an incredible amount of info and artifacts packed in. A lot of Lincoln info but even more about the history and layout of Hardin County. Not much is left to wonder, most everything is there to see.

Small museum, with lots to see. Neat little old time country store, that you could spend an hour in. My children got a good glimpse into history.

I was extremely surprised when I walked into the Hardin County History Museum. They have so much more than I originally thought! It's free, though donations are gladly accepted. The museum is run solely by volunteers and has no paid staff. Don't let that fool...More
