About Us :

The International Bluegrass Music Museum is the world’s only facility dedicated to the history and preservation of the international history of bluegrass music.

Bluegrass is the official State Music of Kentucky, and Bill Monroe’s “Blue Moon of Kentucky” shares with Stephen Foster’s “My Old Kentucky Home” the honorable distinction of being the official Kentucky State Songs. The infectiously energetic style of dance that grew up around bluegrass and old time music is clogging, the official Kentucky State Dance. This museum, established to preserve the history of the music Mr. Monroe created, is located 30 minutes from the little town of Rosine, Kentucky, and Jerusalem Ridge, the homeplace where he was born and grew to manhood, and where he and members of his family now rest in peace.
