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. 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. The Old Pogue Experience housed in the historical Limestone Building adjacent to the Museum Center presents the history of bourbon and the Old Pogue distillery.
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, Past Publisher, The Ledger-Independent
