Speed Art Museum

Kentucky’s oldest and largest art museum invites and inspires diverse audiences to experience the power of creativity through major exhibitions and an encyclopedic permanent collection that spans 6,000 years of human history. Celebrate art in all kinds of ways, including a state-of-the-art cinema that screens art house films weekly. The Art Sparks interactive space allows families to connect over art. The Speed also offers programming for all ages, ranging from workshops and tours to music and lectures. Find out more about current programming online. Thanks to a generous contribution from Brown-Forman, anyone can visit the Speed for free on Sundays through March 2021. Free Sunday admission is named in honor of the late Owsley Brown II. Travel + Leisure Magazine calls the Speed one of “The World’s Most Beautiful New Museums”.
