LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - The Kentucky Derby Museum has been ranked as one of the country’s Best Attractions for Sports Fans by USA Today.

A USA Panel nominated the museum in July, along with 19 other attractions, for the USA Today 2023 10Best Readers’ Choice travel awards.

The Museum was the only attraction in Kentucky nominated for the Attractions Category.

After open voting closed in August, USA Today released the 10Best list and Kentucky Derby Museum ranked 5th.

The Kentucky Derby is the longest-running sporting event in America, and we love sharing the thrill of Derby every day with every guest that walks through our doors.

KDM said they are working on several major projects surrounding next year’s 150th running of the Kentucky Derby, including three new exhibits, multiple must-attend events, exclusive bourbon offerings, and more.
