Pennyroyal Area Museum

Movies at the Museum: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

This 1978 spoof of a B-movie touts itself as a musical-comedy-horror show, and it does not disappoint. It is silly and ridiculous – and opens with a direct reference to Hopkinsville. What better place to watch it than the Museum?! Admission: $5/person; free for Museum Members (Rated PG)

Museum After Hours

Have you been dying to see the museum but just haven’t found the time yet? Here’s your chance! They are going to be open this Friday, September 18 until 7pm. Come and see the changes to the Pennyroyal Area Museum and shop in The Vault before you pop over to the Rotary Auction to pick up a Boston butt or before you grab supper or a beer downtown!

The gallery is large enough to allow for adequate social distancing, but they do ask that you wear a mask while you’re with them. Thanks!
