The Knox Historical Museum reopened on April 21st, 2021 in accordance with state guidelines for museums and libraries. The museum had been closed since November 2020 because the Barbourville City offices had locked the doors to the Municipal building because of a flare up of COVID-19 in the community. The City officials cautioned us that a similar shut down might recur should another large outbreak of disease take place.
The museum hours are Wednesdays, 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. The museum is located on the second floor of the Barbourville Municipal building, 196 Daniel Boone Drive, Barbourville, KY.
