The Cynthiana Harrison County Museum offers special events for all ages. See our upcoming opportunites below. We gladly schedule private and group tours. For information on events or tours please call (859)234-7179 or email.

Due to Covid-19 the 2020/2021 treasure hunt had to be canceled. Looking forward to next summer's hunt in 2022!!                                      See below for this summer's activities

Museum Offers Summer Art-i-FACT Fun Card Activity 

Sponsored by The Burley Market & Café in the month of June and Leono’s Restaurant in the month of July, “Art-i-FACT” Cards will be available for fun fact findings about 10 different items inside the museum. The card has 10 photos with questions that pertain to each picture. Kids will have to find the artifacts in the museum and then answer the questions correctly. Once the card is filled out and approved by museum staff the child will receive a Coupon for a FREE Kids Grilled Cheese or Lemonade Slushie from the Burley Market & Café during the month of June or a FREE Mini Pizza from Leono’s in July. This activity can only be done once by each child. So pick the treat your child wants most and come to the Museum during that month. The museum will keep the completed cards on file in order to have a list of participants. Art-i-FACT Fun Cards will be available to pick up at The Burley Market & Café in June, at Leono’s Restaurant in July and of course at the Museum!

Our thanks to The Burley Market & Café and Leonos for sponsoring this summer activity.

We had a great turnout for our 2021 Summer events.
Thanks to our sponsors and all the families who participated.  


Museum participates in Super Hero Challenge!

Dr Weird knows all! On a recent archeological dig of a Native American site, Dr. Wanda Weird discovered an unusual artifact. She took the artifact home to analyze it. During her studies, she accidentally unlocked the spirit of an ancient witch doctor which possessed her. Through her symbiotic relationship with the witch doctor, Dr. Weird found that she could control an ancient magic. She now uses her new abilities to protect her native country from dark spiritual forces

Dr. Weird wishes for you to find designated items hidden in the Cynthiana Harrison county Museum on Walnut Street in Cynthiana.

To Commemorate Veterans Day we had on display a vintage WWII Jeep Courtesy of Mr. Roger Collins of Versailles Kentucky.

Our museum sponsored a wonderful afternoon learning about and honoring Kentucky's Everyday Heroes and honoring some of our museum's founders. Our speaker Steve Flarity spoke to a room full of attendees. The museum honored Martha Barnes, Herby Moore and the late George D Slade (who's certificate was accepted by his good friend William Penn). Thanks to all who attended this special event. Honoring our museums 'heros' has since become a yearly event.
