The Frazier History Museum is a world-class museum that provides an unforgettable journey through history with ever-changing and interactive exhibits, daily performances by costumed interpreters and engaging special events and programs. To complement our amazing permanent collection, which includes thousands of items from famous world leaders and one of the country's largest toy soldier displays, the Frazier Museum offers an ever-changing selection of intriguing temporary exhibits. Every day, we offer live historic performances, bringing visitors face to face with some of the people and events that changed the world forever, as well as with average people whose moving and important stories you've probably never heard. The Frazier Museum is located on downtown Louisville's "Museum Row" in a beautiful 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility originally called the "Doerhoefer Building," a late 19th century, Chicago-style commercial structure. The Frazier Museum has three floors of exhibits, an education center, Museum Store and tournament ring, as well as event spaces available for rent, including a beautiful Rooftop Garden featuring seasonal blooming flowers and our Fourth Floor Loft space that accommodates up to 360 people seated.

This museum has high quality exhibits and a varied collection. We enjoyed the Lewis and Clark exhibit and the toy soldier collection. Fine photographs and right now the Hunger Games experience is on display. This is part of museum row. You can enjoy the collection in about an hour and a half and get in some of the other museums...

This is a must see if you are a fan of the Hunger Games. The items on display are amazing! We didn't rent any of the devices and just read and took our own pictures. It was great to see all the clothing and items from the movies. Everything was set up nicely and it wasn't crowded. They also have... More

My family and I love learning at the Frazier museum. We especially enjoy the actors dress up as characters and pretend to be them. It is the BEST way to learn history!!!

Across the street from the Louisville Slugger Museum. Had nice exhibits on Lewis & Clark, Prohibition and Toy Soldiers. Just opened is a traveling exhibit of the "Hunger Games" with loads of costumes, sets etc, for a modest additional charge. Worth a visit.

Visited the Frazier to see the much hyped Hunger Games Exhibition with our 14 year old and 11 year old kids. Dear daughter has been obsessed with seeing this exhibit since it debuted in NYC. It did not disappoint. The only draw back was that we paid the $5 fee for her to have a guided listening tour and the... More

The hunger games exhibition will set you pack $27.50 per person which is a little steep. The exhibition has some hands on activities, movie clips, interesting facts about where the author based her book on and costumes designed for the movie. If you dont read the informational boards you miss alot even though you get tired of reading. I really... More

Great place to take the family for an afternoon they will nor regret. Even if there are no kids to accompany you, visit this place if you are into history and weapony. Then if you have the time go across the street to visit Slugger museum. A lot to do on a Saturday, if you legs hold up.

I took my two teenage daughters to the museum to see the Hunger Games exhibit. It was pricey! My girls absolutely loved seeing the entire exhibit. I also enjoyed seeing some of the other exhibits that were around the museum as well.
