Museum Row on Main debuts new look, website
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 14, 2017) – Museum Row on Main kicked off the summer with a vibrant brand refresh and a new easy-to-use website highlighting the seven celebrated attractions that make up Museum Row along four walkable blocks in downtown Louisville.
A stroll down historic West Main Street treats visitors to many of the region’s top history, arts and culture attractions. Boasting diverse and dynamic exhibits and experiences for all ages, Museum Row on Main partners include: Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, Frazier History Museum, Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, KMAC Museum, Kentucky Science Center, Muhammad Ali Center and Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.
Since 2008, Museum Row on Main has served as a collaborative branding, marketing and promotional effort to raise awareness about, and drive attendance to Museum Row on Main partners. The organization’s new brochure and website offer a fresh brand and approach to showcasing the district. Last year, these powerhouse partners combined drew about 1.25 million visitors through their doors in downtown Louisville.
“Museum Row is a premier Louisville destination for tourists and locals alike,” said Karen Williams, President & CEO of the Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We applaud this group of attractions for working together to offer the Main Ticket to encourage increased visitation.”
Museum Row on Main partners offer $1 off admission to guests who show a ticket stub from another member museum that charges admission. A deeply discounted combo admission to select Museum Row on Main attractions called The Main Ticket is also available. They can be purchased at the Louisville Visitor Center in downtown Louisville (301 S. Fourth St.) and online at www.museumrowonmain.com.
Each partner offers extensive summer programming for all ages. Here’s a sampling of this month’s events:
