"Fifty Percent Off February" At Select Downtown Attractions
LOUISVILLE, KY (Jan. 31, 2020) — The Frazier History Museum, the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, the Muhammad Ali Center and Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company — all partners in downtown Louisville’s Museum Row on Main (MROM) — are teaming up to offer Fifty Percent-off adult admissions during the month of February.
Fifty Percent-Off February is a Museum Row promotion that encourages local residents to explore attractions close to home at a time when the long winter is just about over, but the temperatures tend to keep folks indoors.
To take advantage of the offer, guests must mention Fifty Percent-Off February and show proof of residency in Kentucky or Indiana (such as a driver’s license or alternate I.D.) while purchasing admission tickets. Others in the party will also receive the half price admission. The offer cannot be combined with other discounts and does not apply to special tours or events.
In addition to the 50 percent off rate at the Frazier History Museum, the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, the Muhammad Ali Center, and Kentucky Peerless Distilling Company, other Museum Row partners will be offering discounts or special deals throughout the February 1-29 time period.
