The KMAC Museum on Louisville's "Museum Row" has two floors of contemporary art, and a gift shop on the street level which showcases "Kentucky Made" gifts. The admission is FREE, so do stop in for a quick "look...see".

The newly renovated museum is open and full of eye-candy. The exhibitions included primarily modern art and the folk art was presented with a modern vibe. Take time to read the descriptions of the art works. The amount of things on display is just right--not...More

Easy to find and navigate and FREE. Exhibits were forgettable and that should never be a word used with contemporary art. I can't even explain why. In comparison, 21C (just a few doors away) is much edgier. The gift shop here was lovely and the...More

Loved that this museum was free and that the docents/staff were so nice. The museum consists of three levels, although I accidentally took the elevator up to the fourth level which is staff offices. The most memorable exhibit that I viewed was related to textiles...More
