Thanks in part to a generous contribution from Brown-Forman, anyone can visit the Speed for free on Sundays! Have brunch at Wiltshire at the Speed before catching a collection highlights drop-in tour or exploring the galleries independently with a self-guided tour. Also on Sundays, enjoy special free programming hosted by the Museum or one of our community partners!
