It was humbling to see. It was awesome to look at the history of the man who took a little money and turned it into a lot. Interesting and enjoyable.

Just another KFC with a small funky museum attached. It is right in the middle of Corbin and might be worthwhile if you're already there.

While I wouldn't go out of my way to stop here, it was cute to see while we were in the area. The cafe is really large with plenty of dining space. Food was good, typical KFC offerings. The museum was part of the cafe...More

We were just there in January. They listed their hours of operation as Monday - Friday 10:00AM to 9:00PM EST. The museum is incorporated into the main area and the dining room so there are no separate hours for the museum.
