My family loves this museum. We spent the day. One of the favorite aspects is the demonstrations. Today's interpreters, Eric and Kelly, did a fantastic job of demonstrating medieval sword techniques. The museum has some temporary exhibits, so check the website to see what is there..."Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame" today was the last... More

See the tools of war as you've never seen them before. Not just the types of weaponry used all the way back to the middle ages, but how they were used, why and the outcome of many battles. They have things like Geronimo's bow. As one of the most fierce Apache warriors, the story of Geronimo is a fabulous one.... More

I do like to visit a museum when I am in a new town/city. This was a very interesting one. I am English and found myself really interested in my own countries stuff that they were showing, The royal Armouries stuff. The Special NFL stuff was very good too. I enjoyed the 'actor' playing the part of the character too... More

Good place for a veteran to discover the historical roots to his unit. More at the museum than could be covered in one day! Great place for a history buff to explore.

Nice beautiful lay out. Wonderful wedding venues and amazing exhibits. Small children may not be into the hands off approach, but that's just goes to say. Rooftop is awesome, just prepare for winds you brides out there. A must!!

This is a great place to bring the family for insight into history dating back to Napolaen and then coming into the 20th century with the Louisville Football Hall of Fame. It's not a place to rush thought, but one that will enrich your knowledge of history and Louisville legends of the gridiron.

Affiliated with the British Armory in Leeds, UK the Frazier is the real thing. It has a lot more than just medieval arms and armor, but the medieval displays are totally worth the visit. Frankly, this kind of medieval quality and authenticity not something you might expect in a Midwestern US museum, but here it is and it is impressive.
