USA Today named the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs as a top-ten best attraction for sports fans in the 2023 10Best Readers' Choice travel awards, the publication announced Tuesday. The Museum, which ranked fifth on the final list, was the only attraction in Kentucky nominated.
The Museum was nominated along with 19 other attractions by a USA Today panel in July with the public voting for their favorites online.
“We're honored to make the USA Today 10Best list, and we're grateful for everyone's votes,” Patrick Armstrong, Kentucky Derby Museum President & CEO, said. “The Kentucky Derby is the longest running sporting event in America, and we love sharing the thrill of Derby every day with every guest that walks through our doors. Kentucky Derby Museum is a bucket list destination for travelers, especially sports fans, and we're proud to be recognized by our fans with this Readers' Choice Award.”
