Kentucky Military History Museum


With a long and storied history reaching back into the 18th century, the Commonwealth of Kentucky has contributed its share of volunteer lives to the country's military endeavors. This museum commemorates the sacrifices made by members of volunteer organizations such as the Kentucky Militia and the State Guard.

Displays include everything from War of 1812 armament to swords used in the Mexican-American War to the Fighting Falcon glider used in the Normandy Invasion of WW II. There are also items from more recent conflicts in the Middle East. For a complete overview of state history, pair a visit here with one to the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History and the Old State Capitol---all part of the Kentucky Historical Society’s History Campus.
