New Hours at Kentucky Historical Society
The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will revise its hours of operation in 2009. All three buildings on the KHS history campus, including the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, Old State Capitol, and Kentucky Military History Museum, will be affected by the changes.
Effective January 2, 2009, exhibitions at all three sites, the Martin F. Schmidt Research Library, and the Stewart Home School 1792 Store will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Special Collections will be open on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Admission to exhibitions will remain $4 for adults, $2 for youth, and free for children five and under.
“Most patrons who visit the KHS history campus do so between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.,” said KHS assistant director Marilyn Zoidis. “We feel that the new hours will still provide ample time for visitors to view the KHS exhibitions and use KHS research facilities.”
The changes to the hours of operation will also give the Research Library and Special Collections staff an extra two hours in the morning to concentrate on the digitization of the KHS collections. This project will allow all Kentuckians to view the many artifacts, documents, and images that help KHS tell the stories of the commonwealth through the KHS Web site at www.history.ky.gov.
The Kentucky Military History Museum (KMHM) is currently closed for renovations but will operate under the revised hours when it reopens.
