This large museum encompasses many adventures, including Encounter, a unique hands-on, minds-on gallery, a true “edu-tainment” experience. You will also have the opportunity to learn about government in the Wendell H. Ford Government Education Center or Owensboro’s NASCAR connection with a cruise through the motorsports gallery, The Speedzeum.

The Coal Mine Gallery here visitors learn about the history and safety of coal mining in Western Kentucky, then get fitted for your “hard hat”, then begin the journey down the coal mine elevator!

Admission is $3 adults/children, $10 family, and special group rates are available.

Many of the museum’s galleries are available for meeting and banquet space, including the Mammoth Lobby, the Wendell Ford Center, the D.A.R. Room, the Derby Room, the River Room and the PlayZeum.
