I wasn't sure I would appreciate this museum since it seemed to offer mostly old/antique weaponry. It was fascinating! Third floor full of neat stuff from the British Armory as well as live action demonstrations. Film clip of one of my girl hood favorites, Annie Oakley! Just a bunch of really cool stuff. Well worth the visit even for a... More

My husband and I visited for the first time recently. We both really enjoyed it. The museum is well laid out, the displays are very nice and the live short shows they put on are fun. Highly recommend this museum.

Great museum all around! I particularly like the special exhibits that are usually hosted on the 3rd floor. In the past these have included exhibits on Napolean, Princess Di, Leonardo DiVinci, etc. There was even one last year called "Mythic Creatures" that explored things like Bigfoot, mermaids, and Nessie the Loc Ness Monster. I don't have kids, but I would... More

This was my second visit. The previous visit was better because of the in depth history of weaponry. Not just guns and knives, but before....

While I enjoyed the museum, it has a distinct focus on swords, guns, etc. throughout time. There was plenty to see other than that and I particularly liked the British-USA focus. However, I was able to walk past a number of displays because they focus on the weaponry of the particular battle and I'm not interested in that. There was... More

If you love boxing this a must place to go to . It just brings me back listening to Frazier and Ali duke it out, I really loved vising this place.

I had avoided this place because it was a weapons museum. It has other rotating exhibits though, and I was really pleasantly surprised. I would go again when a different, interesting temporary exhibit was up.

A beautiful place with a nice little parking lot just behind it. It does have TONS of guns and knives. Well displayed but this in not a museum for kids to run about, it's more for adults or very focused youth. We saw the special NFL and flag displays. They were interesting and not gimmicks. The best part was a... More

Visited while in Louisville. Not crowded, actually only a few others in the museum. Thought the kids would like, not their favorite. A lot of reading to do. They did enjoy the miniatures and the gift shop. Great parking behind building for $5. Discount if you visit one of the other museums and show tickets/receipt.Did not do football hall of... More

I was disappointed in the experience in that several of the interactive displays were "OUT OF ORDER" also several of the video players were "OUT OF ORDER", so most of it was armour and guns. The dioramas looked dirty and tired. The whole place could have used a good cleaning. The gift shop was full of old exhibits leftovers and... More
