About the Needs Assessment

The City of Louisville and the Louisville History Foundation contracted for a needs assessment to be conducted on the facilities, programs, and services of the Louisville Historical Museum—with the objective of obtaining recommendations from experts regarding the construction of a new building on the Museum campus on Main Street.

The final report from Metcalfe Architecture and Design is available to read online! The report addresses the City’s needs for such improvements as proper collection storage spaces for the artifacts and archival materials, adequate work space for staff and volunteers, and ADA compliant restrooms; but it also identifies the exciting potential for opening up the campus to the public in ways that are sure to enhance visitors’ enjoyment of downtown Louisville.
