Behind the Scenes Tour
The Behind the Scenes walking tour brings Museum guests into many exclusive areas of the Churchill Downs racetrack, including Millionaires Row, the Matt Winn Dining Room and the Jockeys' Room where riders prepare for all of their races, including the legendary Kentucky Derby. Bring your camera for the many picturesque views you will spot from all points on this tour! Visitors also get a look at the member’s only Turf Club and the Fourth Floor Balcony, providing opportunities for photos of the track, legendary Twin Spires and the city. This tour is only available on days when there is no live racing at Churchill Downs. Live racing typically occurs 4-5 days a week from mid-April through the end of June (including the time where the racetrack is preparing for the Kentucky Derby) as well as the months of September and November. Children under five are free with no ticket required. Note that the Jockeys' Room at Churchill Downs Racetrack can only be accessed via a small set of stairs and is not fully accessible. All other parts of the tour are fully accessible, and guests who are unable to travel to the Jockeys' Room may return to the Museum early since that will be the last stop on the tour. Please call for more information before you purchase a ticket if you have a questions about accessibility. 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.
