The Kentucky Derby Museum announced the addition of tours at Churchill Downs June 29. Following closure Mar. 16 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum reopened June 8 but was restricted from conducting tours at Churchill Downs due to health restrictions.

The tours offer special access to non-public areas of Churchill Downs Racetrack, including the invitation-only venue called The Mansion. The museum will also offer the Racehorse Workout Tour, offered Monday through Saturday from 7:30a.m.-8:30a.m. The guided 30-minute Historic Walking Tour is free with general admission.
