Great Historical Perspective

Great overview of Kentucky: it's history, significance and contributions to modern life. My Old Kentucky Home even brought a tear to our eyes.

I enjoyed the movie , but felt it was somewhat disjointed and could have been a little more historical. I think the transitions from every point of the state lacked in reference points on a map and were more into cinemtography than into information. The narration was good and I did recall certain parts of the movie to my friends,... More

The KentuckyShow! is an outstanding movie very well narrated showing the best of Kentucky's culture and traditions to first time tourists and residents. The movie is suitable to all age groups with expectacular digital photographs, and video clips showing the history, music and entertainment, culture, sport events, museums, and much more. I personally adjusted my time schedule to visit Mohammed... More

Last Friday I had the wonderful and eye opening experiencing at the Kentucky Show. That should be everyone’s FIRST STOP when they visit Louisville. It was so interesting and captivating. I can’t thank you enough for allowing us the opportunity to view what my tour guests will be seeing. It was also interesting because of all the other places that... More

The Kentucky Show is only shown a few times a week. I showed up for the 11am showing on a Saturday. I bought my ticket and waited and waited and waited. No one showed up. Very disappointed and I wasted at least 45 minutes.

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

First, I'd like to thank you for reporting your frustrating episode and I'm very sorry this disappointing experience occurred. After some investigating, I discovered that The Kentucky Center employee who was scheduled to open KentuckyShow! that day had been in a car accident that morning and was a little shaken up. Thankfully, he's fine and made it in to run... More

What a wonderful introduction to this really lovely state. This was our first visit to Kentucky so we thought we would use this film as an introduction and start to our visit. Prepare to be embraced by the beauty of this state and its residents.

Went with my travel-writer daughter. We're from Kentucky but she lives in North Carolina & was given a writing assignment in Louisville. We were both so proud, given the fact that Kentucky has its share of nuts which end up on Tv, in movies & politics!!! This show reaffirmed that Kentucky has beautiful natural resources, awesome foods, highly intelligent &... More

Whether you are a native to Louisville or just visiting, this presentation is a must see. Located right downtown on Main Street in the Kentucky Center for the Arts, this is roughly a half hour multi screen presentation about all things Kentucky. Offers a terrific overview of this wonderful state from its great natural wonders to its music, arts, people,... More
