Across the street from the Louisville slugger museum. What a historic museum. My son 10 is very into guns, & history. This was the perfect place for him. There are 4 levels. The guns range from the primitive ones to the Wild West ones to a gun presented to president George Washington. We was amazed. Reasonable price. $ 16 for... More

An amazing collection of artifacts and arms from history that is worth the cost of admission. The large scale model of the USS Louisville is a sight to be seen. I wish they could have expounded a bit more about this WWII veteran cruiser than they did. It would be great if they could have something about the modern day... More

It's all a bit static. If you are interested in military history then you'll like it, but it could be more involving.

Good location. Was impressed with all that you got to see and experience with this museum. Not just an "arms" museum. 14 year old liked this better than the slugger museum.

This is a great experience and worth every penny of the admission. The exhibits are very, very well done and they regularly bring in top notch visiting exhibits. This is a Louisville jewel.

The museum was set up very well and the live presentations were great. We only allowed ourselves 3 hours but could easily have spent longer.

Actually visited here in March of 2013 when our son attended State Governor's Cup. Thought maybe he might see some things that would help in his competition. It was interesting to walk through and see the different eras represented and how they represented them. Did not have time to go back this year or we would have again.

Although it's been about five years since I visited the Frazier Museum, It could have only gotten better due to its collaboration with the Royal Armories of the UK. There's lot to see on three levels, so allow plenty of time for your visit. Located downtown, its within walking distance of two other great museums, which I have reviewed elsewhere... More

From the outside, we didn't expect much. What we saw inside was a nice surprise. My husband was thrilled with the weapons on display. The live sword fighting demo was educational with a side of humor. My favorite was the American flags and memorabilia.

See armor and weapons from early periods in world history. Many artifacts here are truly one-of-a-kind. This is an outstanding museum.
