Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History


Housed in stately, redbrick Spalding Hall, a one-time college and seminary, this museum has an extensive collection of whiskey artifacts, some from as far back as colonial days. You’ll see moonshine stills, old-time jugs and bottles, advertisements, and more. Spalding Hall also houses the Bardstown Historical Museum, where displays give you 200 years of additional context for all that whiskey history. Look for Native American artifacts, pioneer items, Lincoln documents, and Stephen Foster and Jesse James memorabilia.
