Frazier History Museum

SECOND SATURDAYS

Sure, children are the future – but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a blast learning about the past!

The Frazier Museum offers a variety of exhibits, gallery experiences, events and programs designed to help families have fun and experience history together.

We even have special programming just for kids. Each month, on the second Saturday of the month, the Frazier Museum presents an event exploring a different theme. These events, called SECOND SATURDAYS, are designed for children who love learning about true stories from other times and other cultures. 

View our calendar of SECOND SATURDAY programming here! There's no need to register to be able join in on the fun! Programming is included with the cost of admission and free for Members.

JANUARY 14 11AM - 3PM : THE HISTORY OF EVERYDAY OBJECTS

Toilet Paper, Elevators, Exit Signs. Everything’s got a story! 

Our friends from The Thomas Edison House will join us for a fun day, and we’ll have a lot of great activities for learning about the history of objects you might have never considered.

From 11 to 1pm: Yolanda "Yo Yo" Baker, also known as the Go Go Grandma,  maker of sparkling disco balls here at Louisville's Omega National products, for almost 50 years will give a presentation on her craft. We will be giving away a Disco Ball to one of our lucky visitors!

And part of our new Grandparents Initiative, we will debut our quarterly Grandparents Lounge.  Grandparents and those in their care will be invited to relax, take light refreshments, and engage in some quiet event-themed activities.

Activities include:

  • Hands-on Thomas Edison station with The Thomas Edison House
  • An Everyday Object Scavenger Hunt
  • Timeline Challenges (can you put the objects in order by invention date?)
  • A White Glove table with strange an unusual objects from the past.  Can you guess what they were used for?
  • Crafts, live performances and more!

 

In addition, our January Second Saturday program is offered as a Kindergarten Countdown event. Children entering kindergarten in the fall and one adult are invited to join us FREE of charge to enjoy a fun and engaging day that will also address school readiness skills.
