This is a wonderful museum of aviation. They even let you sit in a military helicopter and in a private prop plane. There is an extensive amount of information and a lot to learn. This museum has two large rooms with aircraft and some outdoors. It is just outside the Bluegrass airport. Parking is right at the museum and is easy to find.

My husband and I celebrated Valentine's Day at Waveland enjoying their special evening tea. We had such a good time and it was the best Valentine's day ever! Costumed workers served us tea and treats on fine china at special tables for two. It was delicious and filling. After the tea, we got to take a tour of the house and learn the history of it. The house is filled with genuine antiques collected from the family. We had a great time! I can't wait to go back.

I enjoyed visiting The Art Museum at The U of Kentucky. It's actually located within their Singletary Center for the Arts, so we had a better experience than we anticipated. The front desk person was cordial. Exhibits show a combination of American wall art influenced by major European movements. Exhibits also show East Asian artifacts and South Asian wall art. The museum also displays work by local Kentucky artists, and I enjoyed getting to know them! Everything there looked gorgeous! I loved.
