Welcome to the Education page at the International Museum of the Horse!

The Kentucky Horse Park and International Museum of the Horse are open! We're ready to welcome you back (in small groups and with masks on) Wednesday through Sunday, 10am to 4pm. Currently, IMH is closing from 1pm to 2pm everyday for cleaning and sanitation. We can't wait to see you!



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


Due to the Covid-19 health pandemic, the Kentucky Horse Park and International Museum of the Horse have made the difficult decision to suspend guided field trips until further notice. You are welcome to have self-guided or a virtual field trips! The Education staff have been hard at work creating all-new programs and printed materials for you to share with your students in a virtual experience. 

Reservations can be made anytime throughout the year. Please see the Kentucky Horse Park field trip page for more information about programs and prices.
