The McConnell-Chao Archives at The University of Louisville provides insight to the lives of U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao. The interactive learning experience includes letting visitors test their U.S. history knowledge, scan through the Senator's past campaign ads, and learn more about the careers of Senator McConnell and Secretary Chao.
The small theater offers a selection of two films - Senator McConnell's Inspired to Lead, and Secretary Chao's Promise of America. In order to preserve the projector's lamp-life and usage costs, a proximity-sensor is used at the entrance of the exhibits which allows for the projector to turn on only when there are visitors in the exhibit space.
