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 have mixed feelings about this museum. There’s an excellent Lewis and Clark exhibit which takes up the full 3rd floor. It details the journey with in depth information and it’s laid out as though you’re walking through the wilderness. I would start there. The...More

We had an unplanned 1/2 hour and stopped into the Frazier. Not really into toy soldiers and old flags, but the exhibit on the Magnificent Mona Bismark was wonderful. Highly recommend.

A real interesting museum, lots of American history and you can learn a lot. The only bone of contention I have, they use to have the Royal Armours Exhibit. A real gem. They let it go back and replaced it with another bourbon display. Seriously...More

Went by with friends. Good museum, especially if you are into firearms and toy soldiers. Huge display of toy soliders. They are still expanding and some areas were closed off.

I love history and was expecting a good visit. However, the museum is mostly photographs, toys, and displays for kids, not a real history museum with artifacts. Might be good for kids, but I don't know.

This museum covers 3 floors and has many exhibits on each floor. It covers a wide array of history. If you are in Louisville don't miss this.

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