Study (Then Drink) Up at The Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History


Photographs by Jenny Boone

Few things feel as old-school cool as sitting at the bar and ordering a whiskey. But whiskey didn’t become what it is today overnight; it has some seriously interesting history. At the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History, you can learn all about it


The museum covers the beverage from before Colonial times to after Prohibition. This means moonshine and medicine, all sorts of advertising, and an impressive collection of antique bottles and jugs.

The museum also boasts beautiful architecture and grounds, so this is one to bring your camera.

Open Tues– Sat, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Sunday Noon–4 p.m. Closed Monday. Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History, 114 North Fifth St., Bardstown, KY, (502) 348-2999,
