The Frazer(sp?) Museum is pretty interesting, especially that old British stuff they have. They are sort of a history museum specializing in the development of weapons and how they influence warfare. More interesting than it sounds...

I enjoyed the Derby Museum when i first moved to town. January might not be the greatest time for it since one of the most intriguing parts is the tour of the facilities, but i suppose you could play it by ear depending on the weather.

The Derby museum will be closed until next April due to the flood damage it received when we had all that rain a few months back.

Thanks for all the extra help -- I know that it is not the best time to go, but SW was having such a good air sale a while back ($25.00 each way) that we thought we check it out for a little get away. Now, I am worried that we will not find enough to do with the cooler weather. But I am sure that with all the good suggestions we should be fine. Thanks again.

I'm sure you will find enough to do. If all else fails, the bell hops and receptionists at the hotel you pick will usually know about things that are going on when you are here.

There's plenty to do...Louisville is a big city compared to Green Bay. Many of the locals do go into hiding when its cold, but they will leave more for you to do!

Why don't you explore some of he urban, in town neighborhoods? You would really enjoy the highlands and old louisville.

check these sites for events when your visit gets near:

Metromix | Your Restaurants, Nightlife & Events Guide
Home | Louisville's Alt-Weekly | LEO Weekly
Backseat Sandbar
Commentary | LouisvilleHotBytes.com forum for restaurant advice
www.consuminglouisville.com This site has tons of great links to local sites and blogs

And finally, on of the best locally run development websites www.brokensidewalk.com
