Bluegrass is the official state music of Kentucky and Owensboro is home to the world-renowned International Bluegrass Music Museum (IBMM), located in the beautiful RiverPark Complex just a few steps from the RiverPark Center.
IBMM invites you to enter an exciting world rich with culture, art, history, adventure and positive human interaction by experiencing its all-new series of interactive, hands-on guided tours available daily to groups of all ages.
Tours range from introductory one-hour adventures to three-hour in-depth excursions through the museum with musical instrument demonstrations, discussions and studies on music theory, history, Kentucky culture and humanities. Groups can immerse themselves in an educational, inspirational,
and historical journey through Kentucky’s most famous art form: Bluegrass Music!
All tours are by reservation only, include live music demonstrations, and are designed to accommodate groups of up to 120. Tours last from one to three hours. (Self-guided tours are available in Japanese, Dutch, Czech and Chinese upon request.)
All Tours can have a live bluegrass band performance for an additional fee.
Guided tours must be booked at least 24 hours in advance.
