Museum to Host Community Focus Groups

museum icon

The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County is eager to gather, document, and bring to life the stories of our entire community. We are currently working with an exhibit design consultant to enhance our main exhibition space. At the same time, we are launching an oral history project to gather stories of the African American experience particularly in the days of segregation in our community. As an organization, we are focused on expanding the stories that we tell by being inclusive of our entire community. We would appreciate your help in a collaboration to identify people, places, and stories that can be used to create relevant programs, exhibits, and events to offer back to the community.

On Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19, the Museum will host focus groups specifically to discuss the museum’s relevance with our local African American community. Please join us on Friday, November 18 at 5pm or on Saturday, November 19 at 2pm at the Pioneers Complex at 904 N. Main Street to participate in the conversation. Sessions should last approximately 90 minutes and are open to anyone. Please contact the Museum at 270-887-4270 or by email at if you would like to attend one of the sessions.

Please join us as we further explore our history during this exciting time for the Museum!
