Kentucky Gateway Museum Center Newsletter
The Kentucky Gateway Museum Center educates visitors by offering dynamic collections, exhibits, and a genealogical-historical library. We bring all the stories of the Maysville region into fascinating focus. Our Genealogical & Historical Research Library sheds light on the people and events of a seven-county area through an extensive collection of books, manuscripts and documents from the past 300 years.
Our 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 our 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.
Everyone who ever passed through this part of Kentucky or called it home left a story behind. Some are stories of courage and great achievement, others of love and everyday survival. The more we explore those struggles and dreams, the more we understand our own.
The Museum Center is an extraordinary institution for a city of our size. We use it as a parlor for our guests, a schoolroom for our children and an attic, where our most precious memories are stored. History, genealogy, culture and heritage all wrapped up in one fantastic place. Robert L. Hendrickson, Publisher; The Ledger-Independent
