The Kentucky Derby Museum is located right next to Louisville's historic and world known Churchill Downs. The museum is the best known collection, in my opinion, of Derby memorabilia that you can find anywhere. With your tour, you can watch a short film that gives you a better insight of the historical significance of the Derby ( race facts, horses, jockeys, etc.) Once the film is over, you can walk around the museum and actually see a "replica" of a horse. When I went, you could sit on the horse and have someone take your picture if you brought your own camera. Hopefully this has not changed. I also believe that they offer free parking on days that are not race days at the track.
