Welcome to the Education page at the International Museum of the Horse! Although the Kentucky Horse Park and International Museum of the Horse are currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are hard at work on updating, creating, and providing both teachers and families with resources to use at home.    



We're creating some mini virtual tours! Check them out on YouTube, our social media, or the new Virtual Tours page!

*New content is added weekly!



We might not be able to have field trips right now, but we would love to have your class visit our museum at the Kentucky Horse Park as soon as we're able! If you would like to schedule a field trip, please complete a reservation form here:
