Kentucky Gateway Museum Center
Everyone who ever passed through this part of Kentucky or called it home left a story behind. Explorers. Movie stars. Artists. Pioneers. Slaves. The Kentucky Gateway Museum Center brings all the stories of the Maysville region into focus by offering dynamic collections, exhibits, and a genealogical-historical library.
The Genealogical & Historical Research Library sheds light on the people and events through an extensive collection of books, manuscripts, documents and newspapers from colonial times. The Regional History Museum illuminates the past through award-winning dioramas, more than 4,000 regional artifacts and a gallery of fine art related to Maysville and Kentucky. And the Kathleen Savage Browning Miniatures Collection looks at the world from a new perspective through mesmerizing, 1/12-scale reproductions of homes, furnishings, clothing, artwork and people. Teachers are shown how to use this collection as a teaching tool.
Every fall is an exhibit just for students. Tours are tailored to learning objectives. Students can tour as a group for $1.50 each; teachers free with Teacher's Guide provided.
