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.
MARCH 11th 11AM - 3PM : MEDIEVAL HISTORY
Knights and Vikings! Catapults and crazy cures! Join us for a family day full of medieval fun at the Frazier!
Drop-in activities run from 11:00am-3:00pm and include opportunities to explore our armor touch (and wear!) station, a mini-catapult range, a hilarious craft-your-own Viking Beard station and much more! We'll also be joined by friends from the local chapter of The Society for Creative Anachronism. The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the art and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. In addition to our own fun activities, their folks will be doing demonstrations of loom-weaving, calligraphy and harp music throughout the day.
Check the daily schedule for live performances, which will include our popular “Arming the Knight” Performance.
APRIL 8th 11AM - 3PM : EXPLORE LOCAL MUSIC HISTORY
Louisville has a rich history of all the arts, but we'll take a look, and a listen, to music in particular. Live musicians, opportunities to make your own music, and stories of the past will all be a part of the fun! We'll be joined by our friends from the Louisville Folk School who will be providing a Kentucky instrument "petting zoo" along with some performances. There will also be a station to make your own cereal-box guitar to spark the musician in you!
MAY 13th 11AM-3PM: MOTHER'S DAY
It's safe to say there would be no history at all if not for mothers! So join us as we look at some of the most influential moms in history through games, tales, crafts, and objects.
