We wanted to stop by to see the new KBT welcome center. We found the history of Bourbon in Louisville and Kentucky fascinating. We loved the Lewis and Clark exhibit and it’s interactive experience. We really enjoyed it.

This museum walks one through Kentucky's history and the men and women who made it. The museum is lovely, and it apparently hosts a myriad of events. Great for kids as well.
