Kentucky Historical Society Announces New Public Hours
In an effort to be more accessible to the public, the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will have new hours of operation beginning March 1. KHS is adjusting its hours to be open to the public on Thursday evenings and later in the day on Fridays and Saturdays.
The new hours will affect the entire KHS history campus, which includes the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum (KMHM) at the Old State Arsenal. Both the Center for Kentucky History and the Old State Capitol will follow the new schedule. The KMHM will only be open for guided tours beginning March 1, as renovation work continues on that historic building.
New hours of operation are:
10 a.m. -- 4 p.m. Wednesdays
10 a.m. -- 8 p.m. Thursdays
10 a.m. -- 5 p.m. Fridays & Saturdays
“We want to make sure that KHS is open during hours that are convenient for both visitors and researchers,” said Kent Whitworth, executive director. “This change doesn’t result in either an increase or a decrease in the total number of public hours, but we hope that this new schedule will be more convenient for the public.”
Beginning March 1, KHS will be closed to the public on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays. However, KHS will continue to accommodate scheduled school group tours on Tuesdays and will also accommodate rental requests throughout the week. For more information on visiting, see www.history.ky.gov.
