This wonderful Museum, Paducah's oldest and ONLY general history Museum, is housed in the block long 1905 Market House in the center of Paducah's historic downtown area. The Museum houses some of the finest and most unusual artifacts in the area, which illustrate Paducah's rich cultural and historic heritage.

Explore a time line beginning with Native American residents, through Paducah's founding by famous explorer William Clark in 1827, and view the original hand drawn town maps and land grants signed by Clark. A superb, colorful Old Paris wedding vase, given as a wedding present to Clark by the Marquis deLafayette, is also on display.

Also experience the magnificence of the complete DuBois Robertson Drug Store golden oak woodwork interior... a hand carved masterpiece from 1877...and gaze through the colorful panes of the original stained glass windows.

On permanent display is the town's first motorized fire truck (a 1913 LaFrance!)

Experience an extensive Civil War display including furniture used by the Lincoln's, as well as Generals US Grant and Lew Wallace while they were in Paducah (Wallace was of Ben Hur fame.) A very special quilt made by Mrs Robert E Lee is also on display. A Kentucky Orphan's reunion ribbon insignia display is always a favorite, as well as elaborate hoop skirt dresses, beautiful rosewood furniture and a stately antique lamp with pigeon's blood shade, once owned by Paducahan John T Scopes' grandmother (of the Scopes Monkey Trial fame.)

A 'Kentucky Headline' exhibit depicts the sad plight of Floyd Collins, who was tragically trapped and died in a cave. The story caught the breathless attention of the nation in 1925.

Our 'Hall of Heroes', designed in 2013, honors Paducah firefighters, law enforcement and military personnel.

Newly opened in 2014 is the Alben W. Barkley Memorial Room, honoring the Paducah area native who was 35th Vice President under Harry S. Truman. The exhibit is in a separate room, and devoted entirely to personal artifacts and belongings of Barkley, including his 1898 'surrey with the fringe on top', his inaugural tophat, as well as lovely, century old furniture from the home in Paducah, called 'ANGLES'. The first ever Vice Presidential flag and items from his Paducah law office and Washington political career are also on display. The Museum prides itself on now being Paducah's Barkley destination!

A small but tastefully stocked gift shop is on premises and carries items of educational content, books, puzzles, etc., as well as ephemera and souvenirs.

PLEASE NOTE: The Museum is sometimes closed on major holiday Saturdays, so please call ahead for verification. The facility closes for the winter season Dec 15th and reopens the first Saturday in March. Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 10-4, CST.

A fun place! The people that work there are VERY invested in the museum and its success and in your experience there! They love their town, their history, and their stories. We learned more from Penny, who showed us around, then we did from reading any of the exhibits! She is great!

If you can get in to see a show at the Market House, try it out. It's a pretty small venue though, and seating isn't that comfortable. It's nice that we have a local theater, and I the staff and local actors do a great job with the performances. I just wish it was a more comfortable place to sit... 更多

The Market House Museum is a great place to find out everything about Paducah history. There are all types of exhibits. And the staff is very friendly. Just ask Penny, the director, anything about Paducah and she will have the answer. They have a firetruck, a surrey, artifacts, military uniforms other great things. They even have a great gift shop.... 更多

If you enjoy learning about places you visit, this museum covers Paducah from the original plans drawn by William Clark through the Civil War to WWII. Located in what was originally a meat market and now has the interior of an old drug store that was nearby, there are photos, documents and memorabilia, all accompanied by informative descriptions. There's information... 更多

This museum has interesting information about Paducah, and is worth the stop. Some of the photos and stories about the city, including those by the staff working there, makes it a fun experience. The market house building itself is awesome to experience.

This is truly a great collection of local and national memorabilia. I am especially interested in material from the Civil War and this was wonderful. The Curator is truly a gem and knows her history! Certainly wish they were able to move to a larger location and be able to display even more! Frances Spillman

Great old memorabilia. A nice section from an old pharmacy. You can learn about Paducah, but if you are looking for stuff from famous people, you won’t find it here. It seems to be all about people famous to Paducah. You could spend 15 minutes browsing reading most stuff or an hour if you checked out everything in more detail.... 更多
