A must for any horse lover!  Admission fee includes a guided Historic Walking Tour through the general admission areas of Churchill Downs.  The museum itself has a variety of exhibits, including several hands-on exhibits. The kids love to take the trivia challenge (will they answer enough questions for their horse to win the race?!) or announce their own Derby race like a pro.  Make sure to stop in the 360 degree theatre for a Kentucky Derby movie experience.   Cafe and gift shop on-site.
FAMILY FRIENDLY PROS-  Beautiful facility; well kept.  The hands-on activities were fun for the whole family.  The movie was interesting for the whole family.  The kids were excited to be able to see horses on the tour.

Family Friendly Travel Tip:
Older children can use time in the car or airplane to learn a new craft.  There are some great books about learning to knit, crochet and cross-stitch.  Your child will be occupied and have a sense of accomplishment when they have completed a project by the end of the journey.
