Guides in Victorian hoop skirts and gentleman in tailcoats sing the song “My Old Kentucky Home,” on your tour of Kentucky’s most famous landmark decorated for Christmas, My Old Kentucky Home!

The mansion is adorned and decorated with six beautiful 12′ tall Christmas trees, each with a unique Kentucky theme, including the Commonwealth Tree, Meadows in the Bloom, Birds Make Music All the Day, & more! Garlands, mistletoe & stockings full of toys!

Experience the traditional, and sometimes odd, Christmas customs of the Victorian era at My Old Kentucky Home! Learn the origins of the Christmas tree, how mistletoe became famous for exchanging kisses, the tradition of the yule log, the history of the Christmas pickle, the legends of Father Christmas and Santa Claus, and the bizarre Victorian traditions including Krampus who punished bad children, and learn why Victorians sent Christmas cards featuring sword fighting frogs & frozen birds to each another during the holidays. This highly interesting tour isn’t one you want to miss and it’s great for the whole family!

Held everyday, tours start on the hour from 9am to 4pm, daily.

November 19th – January6th (closed November 25,  December 24, 25, 31 & January 1)
