Looking for something to do with the kids this weekend? Why not take the opportunity to visit “Hope and Healing: Celebrating 125 Years of Norton Children’s Hospital,” a 4,200-square-foot exhibit at Frazier History Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. It explores the hospital’s history within the community through good times and bad, all while shaping the evolution and innovation of care for children and families.
Visit “Hope and Healing: Celebrating 125 Years of Norton Children’s Hospital” on display at Frazier History Museum through Feb. 4, 2018.
The interactive exhibit takes you from spectator to participant in the hospital’s innovation and ingenuity. You can experience what it’s like to be a patient on an ambulance ride, explore a 3-D heart designed specifically for a local boy who needed complex surgery, see locally developed medical equipment now being used around the world and so much more! Also get a glimpse at real and surprising items kids have swallowed (and the hospital has removed) over the years.
The Frazier History Museum is located at 829 W. Main St. on Louisville’s downtown “Museum Row.” The Frazier is where the world meets Kentucky, bringing history to life for visitors through exhibits, artifacts and live performances every day. The Frazier is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call (502) 753-5663 or visit FrazierMuseum.org.
