Frazier Museum Opens New Interactive “Lewis & Clark Experience”
This exhibition that takes visitors of all ages on an immersive and educational adventure and provides the opportunity to face some of the many challenges encountered by the legendary Corps of Discovery.
In 1803, Thomas Jefferson sent Meriwether Lewis and William Clark's Corps of Discovery to find a water route to the Pacific and to explore the uncharted West. He believed woolly mammoths, erupting volcanoes, and a mountain of pure salt awaited them. What they found was no less incredible: some 300 species unknown to science, nearly 50 Indian tribes, and the seemingly impenetrable Rocky Mountains. Visitors will forge rivers and cross mountains, encounter new people, cultures, and fantastic new species of animals, seek the Northwest Passage, and ultimately discover the diversity of the new nation.
The Frazier History Museum is located at 829 West Main Street on Louisville’s downtown “Museum Row.” This world-class museum provides a journey through more than 1,000 years of world and American history with ever-changing and interactive special exhibits, daily performances by costumed interpreters, and engaging programs and special events.
