The Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind features the contributions of those, both blind and sighted, who made the world a more accessible place. We work, every day, to erase barriers and promote tolerance and fairness.
A museum dedicated to ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
A thousand and one stories.
Our online exhibits take you just a bit deeper and explore forgotten aspects of education and rehabilitation.
Plan Your Visit
We promise you’ll remember your trip.
Walking through our museum or watching braille books and Talking Books in production, you’ll gain a new appreciation for how people who are blind do what they do. Individuals, families, and groups are all welcome.
Learn about blindness and the capabilities of people who are blind.
We host a wide range of educational programs for children and adults — history, theater, crafts, and everything in between. Or you can schedule a workshop for your school, homeschool, church, or scout group.
Borrow a piece of the story.
Our educational loan kits are available for use free of charge to groups in the greater Louisville area. Our free online lesson plans are available for classroom use.
The best stories are true stories.
“Like a child in a strange country” is how Helen Keller’s teacher described the first two years of Helen’s formal education. “Child in a Strange Country” is a fully accessible traveling exhibit designed for small museums, library galleries, and blindness agencies.
