Amazing staff, amazing venue!
My husband and I could not have asked for a better experience than what the Kentucky Derby Museum provided for us. The entire staff were beyond amazing, making sure every detail of our vision was brought to life. The venue was stunning, the food was delicious and the setup was absolutely beautiful! Everything from the beginning to the end was done so effortlessly and we cannot thank each and every one of you enough for providing such exceptional service. We look forward to working with the KDM again in the future and highly recommend anyone looking for a venue for all occasions to consider the Kentucky Derby Museum!Sent on 02/12/2021

Ever since I moved to Louisville, I knew that if I ever got married, this is where I wanted to have the wedding. Lucky for me my dream came true! Our wedding went off better than I ever could have imagined. The staff at the Derby Museum was very patient and accommodating with all our requests. They helped arrange everything that evening so that things went extremely smoothly. I never had to worry about a thing. The outdoor area made for a great ceremony and gorgeous photos. The indoor area for the cocktail hour and reception was absolutely the best. Our out of town guests loved being able to see the museum during cocktail hour, and we are still receiving compliments about how wonderful the venue was. If you are looking for a Louisville original for your wedding, with staff that is the best, look no further than the Derby Museum!Sent on 02/18/2018
