Wednesdays in July

The Museum is offering Pay As You Will each Wednesday from July 11th to July 25th. The Kentucky Museum wants to ensure that everyone in our community can see our exhibits.

Each Wednesday in July, instead of standard admission prices, guests will make a donation of admission--- at whatever amount. By eliminating cost barriers, it is our hope that more people can visit the Museum*. The Museum houses six major permanent exhibits and several changing exhibits. Visitor parking is available.

 *Please remember the Museum is always free to all WKU faculty, staff and students with a WKU ID. Pay as You Will Wednesdays does not apply to scheduled docent guided tour groups.
