The Muhammad Ali Center, Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, and Frazier History Museum — all partners in downtown Louisville’s Museum Row on Main(MROM) — are teaming up to offer $5 admission for Kentucky and Indiana residents throughout February.
This annual promotion encourages locals to explore attractions close to home at a time when the long winter is just about over, but the chilly temperatures are lingering on. To take advantage of the offer, guests must mention “$5 February”and show proof of residency in Kentucky or Indiana, such as a driver’s license or alternate ID, while purchasing tickets. Others in the party will also receive the $5 admission, a substantial savings over the $10 – $15 regular prices. The offer cannot be combined with other discounts and does not apply to special tours or events.
