LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Kentucky Museum, located on Western Kentucky University campus, opens an exhibit September 21 with the intention of inspiring the next generation of American innovators.

The exhibit, which centers around the ordinary means by which renowned Americans have achieved extraordinary things, is the only exhibit of its kind in the United States.

The vast collection of over 140 pieces includes many iconic and memorable items, including the underwater camera used by Titanic discoverer Dr. Robert Ballard, the hammer used by former President Jimmy Carter during his time volunteering with Habitat for Humanity and one of Tony Hawk's earliest skateboards.
