The first exhibit we saw was called "A Kentucky Journey". It is the main exhibit at the museum and if you follow the path of the exhibit from beginning to end, it tells the story of Kentucky's history from prehistoric times until now.
This is a replica of a family in Kentucky who lived in the Prehistoric Age of Kentucky (prior to 1750 AD) before European settlers started to come there and it shows examples of the types of things they would have worn during this time and some of the tools they would have used as they went about the activities of their daily lives. In the near future, we will begin a chronological study of Kentucky history. When we go back to the museum in April, we will study this time period more closely, then we will take a field trip or two to other places in Kentucky that pertain to this time period.
