  • One of its kind. Absolutely amazing !
  • Stop by and check out the museum and tour. Well worth the visit
  • The building houses a museum on the blind and innovations concerning their literacy. There are two floors and it was free to go in. The exhibit is good, and definitely good to learn more if you have never had the chance to become acquainted with any blind persons.

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
