We spent a few hours here in January 2015. I especially enjoyed the White Christmas exhibit ! The Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous on the top floor was a lot of fun comparing the clothing styles & sizes of the women's waistlines. We saw two live productions which would especially appeal to African Americans & children. The young man... More

Lots to see in this interesting history museum in downtown Louisville, right across from the Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum. The third floor was devoted to European History along with the special exhibit, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, also located on this floor. The second floor was devoted to American History. Both levels had many fascinating items! Throughout the... More

My mother and I visited and ended up spending over two hours just exploring and enjoying the exhibits. I am absolutely certain that we didn't see everything and we can not wait to return. I don't think I could name a favorite part we had an amazing time throughout. I loved that there were some interactive exhibits and the employees... More

The White Christmas exhibit was fabulous. The soundtrack playing in the background was perfect. Hosted the original blue dresses with one ostrich feather fan, among the wardrobe show cased. Frazier Museum , had Princess Diana ' s wardrobe a couple of years ago. So great variety of displays turn over thru the months. Loved it !

We have the yearly membership. It is well put together and worth a visit. Adults would love the exhibits as much as the kids. The staff is helpful. They do have special events and exhibits which are fun as well as educational.

There are lots of displays on weapons through the ages at this museum but the time we visited they also had a good exhibit on the Golden Age with gowns and other items. The weapons of all sorts also are works of art through different times and cultures. They also have story tellers dressed in costumes who appear in a... More

Frazier Museum is a great place for visitors of all ages. It is on historic Main Street in a restored building. The museum has lots of displays that incorporate historic pieces with pictures and documentary. It has more "manly" items like guns, battle gear and military pieces as it is assoicated with the British Arms Museum. It also has great... More

In every state I visit I always make sure to visit the different museum that the state has to offer. Louisville unfortunately is a bit disappointing. Not only do I have to pay for the entrance to the museum, there was not a whole lot to see. The exhibits were nothing historic and was mostly replicas.
