Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum

The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum will introduce you to the many Kentuckians who have made a significant contribution to the music industry. Located in Mt. Vernon, just beside the Renfro Valley Entertainment Center, the museum houses artifacts and memorabilia highlighting the careers of its inductees, who represent all genres of music. The more than 50 inductees include The Backstreet Boys, Loretta Lynn, Florence Henderson, Rosemary Clooney, Keith Whitley and Boots Randolph. 

Even the museum structure is a piece of music history. The entrance to the building was once the sight of the original riding stables of Renfro Valley founder, John Lee Lair. That portion of the building now houses the visitor center and a must-see gift shop with new products and souvenirs. Most of the original structure of the stable is intact and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
