Imaginatively displayed materials, not an overwhelming number of exhibits. We enjoyed the actor reenactment of historical figures and the card magician. Toy soldiers, western brass sculptures are spectacular. Lots of other things to do in the area.

We arrived near the end of their business hours so we felt pretty rushed to get through. There was so much to see and beautiful, interesting displays. I wish we would have had a little more time. I would certainly return.

Limited exhibits. Lots of guns, dioramas with little miniatures in display cases and historical exhibits. The Louis & Clark exhibition was interesting. The museum was less interactive than we thought it would be for the kids. The admissions staff were very friendly and personable. The gift shop staff was not. They were not gracious when given feedback (the gift shop... More

Not a history museum in a general sense of the word. Extensive display of rifles and swords from different periods in history. There's also various show/demonstration at various time of the day.

My husband and son love the wild west. We hit the jackpot here. Old guns and more. Super clean so much information!! The staff at the ticket counter and gift shop were so friendly and funny! We just stumbled upon this and enjoyed it.the only downside was not much staff to help in the galleries.

We had not heard of this museum before coming to L'ville for the weekend but now will make it a regular stop. Great museum - live interpretations were fantastic. We will definitely come back - great gift shop as well, we made several purchases. Add this to your list if visiting Louisville.

NIce museum right down town. The displays tend more to military history but also objects from the westward expansion. Great collection of miniatures. Well worth the stop

We bought The Main Event tickets at our recent trip to Louisville and had some time to kill, so decided to go check out this museum. Didn't really think we would enjoy it as much as we did, especially the Lewis and Clark exhibit! We spent most of our time in that exhibit and really enjoyed all the information that... More
