Join us for some Derby contender spotting! There's not a more exciting time to visit the 'backside' of the racetrack than the week leading up to Derby. Experience the hustle and bustle firsthand in this exclusive van and walking tour. Visitors will take a ride to the other side of the track into the barn area. As you ride through the barn area, look for the yellow saddlecloths and spot a Derby winner in the making! Do not forget your camera (flashes must be turned off) because there will be many opportunities for photo-ops. This tour offers great insights about the workings of the racetrack, care and attention to the horses and the history of this world famous track. Whether you are a racing novice or a frequent fan, this tour through the barn areas will be a hit. This exclusive tour is offered only to guests of the Museum. This is a great tour for horse lovers, but please note: guests will not be able to touch the animals or enter the shed rows. Tour guides, when possible, will point out the barns where the Derby contenders are housed in preparation for the big race. Seats are limited since the group is transported to the backside in a van. This specially priced tour is available from April 22-May 1, 2019, theWednesday before the Kentucky Derby. As of 7/1/18, Kentucky State law requires the Museum to collect 6% sales tax on all tickets and memberships sold both through its website and in person.
