0 Comment

In celebration of the upcoming IMG_3587festivities in Louisville, the Pennyroyal Treasures exhibit features a complete collection of souvenir Kentucky Derby glasses. On loan from Diane Wood of Hopkinsville, this collection showcases glasses from 1940-2016. See the changing styles of this popular memento used for drinking mint juleps, the traditional bourbon cocktail consumed at Churchill Downs. The exhibit will be on display at the Pennyroyal Area Museum through June 2016.

The Pennyroyal Treasures exhibit is an opportunity for the general public to share everyday objects that pertain to family, work, and play. These collections or “treasures” interpret our lives and our times and reveal progress, change, and nostalgia.
