History of the Museum
The International Museum of the Horse opened in 1978 in conjunction with the opening of the Kentucky Horse Park. Over the past 42 years the Museum's exhibits have grown from a meager 22,000 square feet to 64,000, and its collections are now some of the finest and significant on the subject in the world. It is the largest museum in the world to explore the fascinating relationship between horses and humans.
