The Great American Dollhouse Museum

Reviewed By Andrew P - Germantown, United States

A Dollhouse Museum that is an amazing way to share social history. Study fashion, design, people, historic events from the 18th C. to the present, all in miniature with incredible life-like detail. Really enjoyed the settings that told us about Kentucky's history (Shakertown, underground railroad and the tobacco industry).

Stopped by while doing the Kentucky Craft Bourbon Trail. Had a very informative tasting. Only got to try the vodka and rum, since the bourbon was not quite ready yet. Both were very good. Can't wait until the bourbon is ready!

Pioneer Playhouse

Reviewed By Susan M - Dayton, Ohio

This was our second time in the Danville area but our first time to the Pioneer Playhouse. We opted for the dinner before the performance which was very good bbq and all the fixings. There is a small gift shop and sitting area near the outside dining area. In addition there is a re-creation of a western type street to peruse with an ice cream parlor. The tiered theatre afforded excellent views of the stage with large lawn chairs with ample space between them. Snacks were available at intermission. The comedy "Drinking Habits" was excellent. All the actors were very good. Acoustics were great and the show well paced. Everyone involved in the venue was welcoming. My only complaint is the antiquated bathrooms, some stalls with only curtains and plumbing issues. We really enjoyed this unique venue and production under the stars. It was a very relaxing evening.
