Crews have broken ground on the American Printing House for the Blind’s (APH) new museum The Dot Experience, a reference to the Braille language.
Part of a $55 million improvement project for its campus on Frankfort Avenue, The Dot Experience will bring awareness to blindness and low vision, highlight the contributions of iconic blind people like Louis Braille and Helen Keller, and share first-person stories of blindness.
It also aims to be the most accessible museum in the world thanks to APH’s partnerships with Louisville’s Solid Light design institute and Prime Access Consulting.
The new $22 million museum will replace the current one — which closes on Sunday, June 4 to accommodate construction.
The Dot Experience plans to be open in 2025, but you can browse APH’s online exhibits anytime.
