The Frazier History Museum‘s mission is to present historical information, artifacts and exhibits relevant and interesting to everyone in the city, state and beyond. They know some people shy away from the mere subject of history, but on Thursday, July 28, they’re going to attempt to make it cool.

The “Hip History” series will take museum attendees behind the scenes, so to speak, and bring history to life. The inaugural event will be held from 5:30-9 p.m. and feature live music by singer-songwriter and Louisville native Heather Bond; a meet and greet with artist Julius Friedman, whose “Retrospective” is now on display; samples of beer from the guys at Goodwood Brewing; fresh-made kettle corn; selfie stations; the folks of Cellar Door Chocolates and their treats; and many costumed performers throughout the museum.

The idea is to make history more accessible to everyone, and from the looks of the lineup, it’ll be quite an interesting evening.

This month’s “Hip History” night benefits the Neighborhood House. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for members and $5 for kids ages 5-17.
