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
MAY 13th 11AM-3PM: MOTHER'S DAY
If not for mothers, there would be no history at all! We'll have fun celebrating some of the most influential moms in history through games, crafts, and special objects from our collection. Match the mother to the famous person. Examine gifts soldiers sent back to their mothers on the home front. Share a planting with your mother, courtesy of our friends from The Food Literacy Project, and learn from their educators about local food sources and caring for Mother Earth.
The Food Literacy project will be rolling up to the Frazier with their Truck Farm, a mobile, edible, educational garden that reaches thousands of children and their families in our community. Truck Farm is a unique community resource that enables the Food Literacy Project to “bring the farm” into schools, especially those that don’t have their own gardens, to more community events such as farmers markets, community fairs and festivals, and to collaborate with other community organizations.
And don't forget about your mother's/father's mother! This month we'll also offer our quarterly Grandparents Lounge with refreshments for the duration of today's event, 11:00 - 3:00.
JUNE 10th 11AM-3PM: EXPLORERS AND TRAILBLAZERS AND KINDERGARTEN COUNTDOWN
Amazing, awe-inspiring stories come to light when you explore your city, your state and the world around you. Come blaze your own trail as you laugh and learn through special objects, games, crafts and our great live performances. Follow in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark and Sacagawea . . . of sailors who conquered the seas . . . and astronauts who made it to the moon.
Make sure to join our friends from the Louisville Free Public Library to help you select a book with more stories of adventure and daring-do. You can even check out a book with your library card!
As a Ready for K Alliance partner, the Frazier History Museum is excited to host a Kindergarten Countdown event to coincide with this month’s SECOND SATURDAY.
