Review for Kentucky Gateway Museum Center, Maysville, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Kentucky Gateway Museum Center is now one of the most important collectors of artifacts of our region. The Museum has offered educational shows for children and adults. It houses a miniture collection that rival none. Visitors are amazed at how the museum is layed out, what it houses, and the programs in which it offers the community to participate in. The children of this area are given more ooportunities to educational programs and rewards that the museum offers than any other place in the state. Programs ranging from Holloween stories for the children at the old courthouse, to parades, having the opportunity to visit world class exhibits like Children Like Us. The progams that are offered also entertain as well as educate. This community is just now beginning to realize what a gem we have here in Maysville, Kentucky. I am proud of the volunteer program that the museum utilizes withing the community, and the staff of tireless workers that seem to always pull together to complete a show or exhibit that the area truly enjoys.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Art, photography, a FANTASTIC miniture collection, as well as exhibits for adults and students alike.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try to attract youth to help the workers of the museum. Their future is the youth of our area, and more of the them need to know how the museum operates, and benefits from their experiences.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The edcational benefit is unbievable. For a community of this size to have world class exhibts, shows, and educational programs, research information that they have is miond blowing!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The companionship of the workers is fantastic! Both the volunteers and the staff are like family. They not only get along, they look out for one another. Help each other and suggest better ways they can meet the communities needs.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

The museum is alwys struggling to find funds that will allow them to attract new shows and exhibits that are world class. This type of money would benefit the children of the community beyond their wildest imaginations.

Ways to make it better...

Everytime I have participated in a program or worked and event, my participation has alwys been fun and rewarding.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Money. What organizaton dosen't need money. There is a constant fundraiser that the museum undertakes when a great idea is brought to the table. And belive me, they have many great ideas.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Maysville KY has one of the finest museums in the country. We have people that visit by planes, trains, riverboats, cars and buses. They all cannot believe that a brilliant gem exist here, and cannot wait to plan their next trip here.
