I cannot begin to tell you how much I enjoyed the museum/library when it was housed only in the original old library building. My father instilled a respect for and interest in history and a great-great aunt inspired me to do research on the family. My father would drop me off and I'd spend the entire day (until closing) doing research, looking at exhibits and learning about my community's past. The staff were the best and treated me (a child) with as much respect as any other person who was there doing research. They looked out for me as well. They'd ask what I was researching and while away from my table I'd be pleasantly surprised to find a book or file left for me to review. They also connected me with others doing research on my family. It has been years since I visited the museum but I remember those days fondly. They were very much an influence on my future as I obtained a Masters in Library Science and have worked in a major urban library in Ohio for over 20 years now and am currently the Genealogy Subject Specialist for this library. I very much enjoy helping others pursue their interests in genealogical and historical research and hope that I inspire others as much as I was during my visits there. I wish to say thank you for such a wonderful experience and am proud to see how you've grown and continue to help and inspire others. Thanks, Russ Pollitt

I have found the Kentucky Gateway Museum Center to be a superb facility and history center for Kentucky. It's research library is top notch and they have a wealth of information. The employees are all very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. There are terrific changing exhibits and a world class miniatures exhibit. The Museum Scouts and other children's programs are a great educational experience for the young people. The whole museum is quite an asset and jewel for the area. Anyone who visits will have a truly great day. The Museum has many items and exhibits that rival museums in much larger cities in the world.

What a wonderful asset KGMC is for the community and the state of Kentucky. I have only been a member for a few years but have come to appreciate the museum and all it has to offer recently. There is a vast amount of research information available and the local historical artifacts is wonderful. The miniatures gallery is a gem all by itself!

Not sure why I got an email to write a review. I have only been to this museum 4 times---it should have only been three but no one could answer my questions or fax or email me the answer So I had to make a special trip. Also, I have been all over this country doing research and the prices they charge for pictures to use in publications is just outrageous. They wanted $100 to use a couple photos--I found them at a different historical society and was charged $20.

I work for another historical society in the area and the only time we hear from KGMC is when they want something---just like this---our requests always go unanswered.
