History in Miniature

Friday, April 21, 2017
2:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Grades K – 4, minimum 15 / maximum 120 students

The Frazier History Museum is proud to house the Stewart Toy Soldier collection - one of the largest collections of historic miniatures on public display in the world! During this engaging program we’ll use the collection to not only explore tiny things from history and personal collections, but as a lens to study the neighborhoods, landmarks, and people that make Louisville, Kentucky a special place. Students will work in teams to create a large 3D map of Louisville, adding miniature figures, landmarks and architecture to the display. In addition they will enjoy investigating artifacts with local connections in the museum galleries, visiting the Stewart Toy Soldier Collection, hands-on time at our play tables and a live show. Each family will leave with materials to create their own version of the map for further use as a teaching tool at home.
