Taking a Winter Break …
The Highlands Museum & Discovery Center is taking a winter break due to rising Covid-19 cases in our area. It is our hope that taking this break will allow us to construct new and exciting exhibits and continue building the new Clark Family Discovery Center, currently under construction on the 2nd floor.
It is our plan to be able to OPEN IN APRIL 2021 with an exciting exhibit celebrating Anita Madden: Ashland native, Lexington socialite, and businesswoman.
During this break, the museum office and gift shop will remain open during normal business hours (Tues-Fri, 10 a.m to 4 p.m.). Be sure to stop in for unique Kentucky made gifts, Ester Price Chocolates, Ruth Hunt candies, Mom Blakeman cream candy and other curiosities. For questions during this time please call the main office 606.329.8888.
