About Us :

Explorers. Movie stars. Artists. Pioneers. Slaves. Everyone who ever passed through this part of Kentucky or called it home left a story behind. Some are stories of courage and great achievement, others of love and everyday survival. The more we explore those struggles and dreams, the more we understand our own. 

Now, by showcasing three dynamic collections in one place, the Kentucky Gateway Museum Center brings all the stories of the Maysville region into fascinating focus: 

Our Genealogical & Historical Research Library sheds light on the people and events of a seven-county area through an extensive collection of books, manuscripts and documents from the past 300 years. 

Our Regional History Museum illuminates the past through award-winning dioramas, more than 4,000 regional artifacts and a gallery of fine art related to Maysville and Kentucky. 

And our Kathleen Savage Browning Miniatures Collection looks at the world from a new perspective through mesmerizing, 1/12-scale reproductions of homes, furnishings, clothing, artwork and people.

Step outside the center, and you will discover that Maysville’s stately architecture has more than a few great tales to tell, as does the pioneer graveyard located behind the Center. 

Before tomorrow becomes yesterday, we invite you to get the whole story at the Kentucky Gateway Museum Center.
