Where else to go in Louisville



Even though the Reds' Triple-A affiliate Bats are out of town, there still are plenty of other non-horse-related things to do in Louisville:

Louisville Slugger Museum: Doors open at 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday and at noon Sunday, but the museum will close at noon on Derby Day and there is no bat production on Sundays. Admission: $6 adults, $5 seniors, $3.50 kids 6-12. Directions - Take I-71 South to I-64 West. Exit on 3rd Street. Right onto River Road and left onto 8th Street.

Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom amusement park: Adult admission, $34.99. Directions - Take I-71 South to Louisville. Exit I-71 South at I-65 South. Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom is approximately 5 miles from downtown Louisville at the Crittenden Drive exit, Exit 132. Enter the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center through either Gate 4 or Gate 2 on Crittenden Drive and follow the signs to Kentucky Kingdom once on the Fair and Expo Center grounds.

The J.B. Speed Art Museum: Doors open at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday-Saturday, noon Sunday. Closed Monday. Admission to the permanent collection is free. Directions - Go south on I-71 to I-65 South. Take Exit 133 (Eastern Parkway). When coming off the ramp get in the right hand lane. Go straight through the stop light. The road ends at Eastern Parkway West and you have to go right onto Eastern Parkway West. Eastern Parkway dead-ends at Third Street; turn right (North) onto Third Street, and the museum is the second driveway on the right.

If you want to go to the Kentucky Derby Museum, you'll have to do it early in the week. The museum, at Churchill Downs, is closed Friday and Saturday this week. Otherwise, the museum opens at 8 a.m. Monday-Saturday and at noon Sunday. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and $3 for children 5-12.
