As Kentucky continues to respond to the pandemic, the majority of Louisville’s 120 attractions are open and safely hosting guests.
Hours may vary frequently also due to staffing shortages, so Louisville Tourism staff is curating information in as close to real time as possible with this list. Please note that some tours are limited to capacity and are filling up quickly, so best to make reservations in advance if possible. Some attractions are also hosting walk-in visitors. The distillery tours seem to be filling up fast. One option to help plan a Bourbon adventure is to use the free concierge services provided by the Frazier History Museum (official welcome center of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail ®), the Louisville Visitor Center or Mint Julep Experiences for access to special tours.
