THE BLUEGRASS HERITAGE MUSEUM seeks to bring the history of Central Kentucky to life by collecting, preserving, interpreting and exhibiting the material culture of the region known as the Bluegrass.

Located in a signature Romanesque Revival building on South Main Street in Winchester, the museum examines the history of the Bluegrass from European contact with Native Americans to the present.
