Once in a while it's great to sneak something into the trip itinerary that's just for Mom. The kids saw the nice neat lines of empty chairs as an opportunity to cause chaos and the employees quickly passed out free souvenirs that kept them seated and occupied the whole time...maybe watching a movie after a 7 hour car ride was...

We've lived in Kentucky nearly 30 years and found that this 30-35 minute film does a really good job of describing the regions and special characteristics of Kentucky. It made me want to go and visit places I have not yet seen and many that I have visited in the past. Great for visitors, new residents and even those of... More

This 32 minute show is a nice introduction to all things Kentucky. I would recommend it for a new visitor because it provides some great ideas of what to visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Louisville and very happy to have taken the time to see the Kentucky Show. A very informative film on Kentucky. Highly recommend to visitors new to Kentucky.

This short film (30 minutes or so) is very well done, and a wonderful overview of Kentucky! My youngest child wasn't engaged (he is 5), but everyone else in my family (ages 10 and up) enjoyed it. I though it gave a good orientation to Kentucky for our visit here.

We went because it was part of a ticket package we had bought. In all honesty, if it wasn't included, we probably wouldn't have gone. Anyway, we went with our 5 and 3 year old. According to their website, kids 5 and under were free. They had no information about that, so my husband had to go online and show... More

The Kentucky Show runs about 30 minutes and had a decent range of historical and cultural information regarding the state. It gives a nice overview of the area and is well-made. I'd also like to add that, although the gentleman who took our tickets was beyond friendly, the woman who sold them to us was rather rude and unpleasant. If... More

Kathy K, General Manager at KentuckyShow!, responded to this review

I'm so glad you enjoyed KentuckyShow! and found it interesting and informative. Over 200 Kentuckians were interviewed during the making of the show, so it was a true labor of love for many to produce it. I'm sorry for your experience at the box office; KentuckyShow! rents its theater space from The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts so we... More

Not that great of a film or setup to view in my opinion. I am from KY and went to see it due to some hype. But disssapointed.

I always enjoy a film about a place's history and sights. This film presents a nice overview of Kentucky's history and sights to see. Make sure you get the discount for visiting several museums.
