In the Museum you will see exhibits that range from artifacts centuries old to the memorabilia of today’s most well known artists. Some exhibits convey the excitement of a musical movement or event, while some take you to a place in time where life was more simple and reflective. Each tells its own story of how a culture lived, or maybe of just one individual who found their way from simple roots to world wide fame.
Though the general theme of the Museum’s time line will remain the same, individual exhibits will change from time to time as more artifacts become available.
However, the “Collection Gallery” will provide the space for exhibits that will change more frequently. Here visitors will find a historical collection of a particular instrument; the stories of any number of musical genres or perhaps even a well publicized traveling exhibit.
Included in the museum is an instrument room, where visitors see, touch, hear and perform; a functioning sound booth where visitors may sing and record; a historic timeline with exciting exhibits and dioramas that take the visitors from the beginnings of Kentucky music at “Brush Arbors” and on the front porch, to WHAS Radio in the 1940’s, to bluegrass concerts on the courthouse steps and at ball fields all over the state.
We will always strive to maintain exhibits that are not only reflective, educational and becoming to what they represent, but also new and entertaining for those guests who will return for future visits.
