Overview

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.

I've been to several history museums -- and many just to bide an hour or so before doing something else. However, the Frazier exceeded my expectations, mostly due to the excellent Lewis and Clark exhibition and the Prohibition-era exhibition. The museum is well laid out,...More

I was impressed with the variety of exhibits. The Lewis and Clark exhibit included sensory experiences. There were items we could touch. The Indian legends were told by a talented woman in historic dress.

The Frazier History Museum started as a arms museum but has grown into so much more. We love to visit as a family and my pre-teen daughters love to tour the exhibits. Our favorite thing though are the historical reenactments.

This covers a wide range of historical & art items. Three big floors, two hours at least to read & absorb the history. A great Louis & Clark 'trail' of information, artifacts. A toy soldier exhibit is a new display; made so tiny!

In my opinion, Fraziermuseum website is much friendlier than TripAdvisor to navigate. That being said - $12 adult ticket
