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.

It's a waste of time unless you want to see thousands of toy soldiers. The only history of KY I saw was pictures.

Enjoyed visiting this history museum while visiting other museums in the area. Several exhibits with military miniatures which were fascinating to look at. All exhibits had great labeling.

The Frazier History Museum may be small in size but not in aspirations. The exhibits are bursting with detailed information and are presented in a multitude of forms. For example, the Prohibition Exhibit presents the history of prohibition from the passage of the 18th Amendment...More

My friend and I sped through this museum and were underwhelmed by its permanent collection. I certainly don't recommend that adults without children in their party pay to go to this museum. I think it's certainly geared more towards children. When we were there, there...More
