I toured the American Printing House for the Blind and was very impressed with the facility, the wide array of products they develop and manufacture, the high standards to which they hold themselves in the creation of the products, and they professionalism of the staff. Highly recommend this to anyone!

I toured the American Printing House for the Blind with my son's third grade class and have to say what an amazing place it is!!! I have lived in Louisville most of my life and have passed by the location, but did not realize they gave tours. The Museum is excellent. Our tour guide was great and kept the kids engaged. I didn't realize how many items they make and the number of children they serve (over 59,000 across the United States).

The tour is free! Take my advice and take advantage of this Louisville Treasure.
