Mid-Winter Break 2016: Kentucky Derby Museum

This was the unexpected highlight of our trip. I’m gonna just go ahead and make the Kentucky Derby Museum a TheJLBs Road Trip Must See. We had lengthy discussions afterward about how it was absolutely the most hands-on, kid-friendly, best use of available technology museum we’ve ever been to. We even watched their movie twice, which was shown in a big oval room so you had to constantly swivel on your stool to follow the action all the way around.

The included  tour of the Churchill Downs property was very interesting itself. Even on a cold February day.

I truly think we loved everything there (including the Derby Pie at their cafe) and spent well over two hours enjoying ourselves. I left completely comitted to following the triple crown series on TV this year.
