Off-Season Barn and Backside Tour
Please note that the Off-Season Barn and Backside Tour takes place when there are usually no horses residing at the Churchill Downs Racetrack. Guests will most likely not see a horse during this tour.

This is a guided van tour of the "other side" of the Churchill Downs Racetrack to see the stable area that will be filled once the track reopens for business in late March. This highlight of this tour is your opportunity to walk through the actual barn where Secretariat stayed during his historic Kentucky Derby run, normally off-limits when the track is in race season. You will also have the chance see the Backside Learning Center and hear about the history of America's most iconic home of Thoroughbred racing. This exclusive one hour tour is offered only to guests of the Museum. This tour will be available daily December 1, 2018 through March 24, 2019. As of 7/1/18, Kentucky State law requires the Museum to collect 6% sales tax on all tickets and memberships sold both through its website and in person.

A Kentucky Derby Museum admission or membership IS REQUIRED to have access to the Barn and Backside Tour. You can buy an admission online right now with this tour ticket or pay at the time of your visit. This ticket is NON-REFUNDABLE by the purchaser. This tour is open to all adults and children age 8 and over and standing 57" high or taller.

Please arrive at the Museum's Visitor Services desk at least fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled departure time of this tour in order to get through the ticketing lines before the tour departs. All tours leave promptly at their scheduled departure time and will not be delayed due to prepaid ticket holder tardiness. If you wish to reschedule this tour ticket to an alternate date or time after purchase, please call 502-637-1111 at least 72 hours in advance of the listed departure time. Rescheduling is not guaranteed due to limited availability of these tours, and no refund or credit will be given if the ticket holder requests a different time that is unavailable for any reason. Unfortunately, Museum staff may not have the opportunity to respond to rescheduling requests made closer than 72 hours in advance.

This tour may be cancelled at any time, with or without notice, due to extreme weather or at the request of Churchill Downs. In the case that this tour is cancelled by the Kentucky Derby Museum after the time of this ticket's purchase, every effort will be made to place the ticket holder on another tour at a time that is agreeable to both parties. If this cannot be managed, the Museum will provide a full refund of the tour purchase price back to the original credit card used for payment.

If booking more than one tour, please be sure that the beginning and end times do not conflict. You will most likely be unable to reschedule the tour on your day of visit and no credit or refund will be given for unused tickets due to scheduling errors on the purchaser's part.
