Kentucky Historical Society
KHS Exhibition Closed for Repairs
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 29, 2009) – The Kentucky Historical Society’s (KHS) signature exhibition, “A Kentucky Journey,” is currently closed for repairs. As a result, KHS is offering half off its regular admission prices during this period.
All other exhibitions and tours on the KHS history campus remain open. Visitors still have the opportunity to see “Made to be Played: Traditional Art of Kentucky Luthiers” and “Great Revivals: Kentucky Decorative Arts Treasures,” as well as enjoy guided tours of the Old State Capitol.
“We hope to reopen “A Kentucky Journey” within the next two weeks,” said Kent Whitworth, executive director of KHS. “This temporary closing will allow us to complete several necessary repairs.”
The KHS history campus includes the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum at the Old State Arsenal. The Arsenal remains closed for renovations. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
Until “A Kentucky Journey” reopens, admission prices will be reduced to $2 for adults and $1 for youth ages six to 18. KHS members and children five and under receive free admission.
An agency of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, the Kentucky Historical Society, since 1836, has provided connections to the past, perspective on the present, and inspiration for the future. KHS operates the Old State Capitol, the Kentucky Military History Museum and its headquarters, the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History. Since 1999, the thirty-million-dollar Center has welcomed more than one million visitors.
