Toured this exhibit with my girlfriend over the summer. My, what a fabulous museum and exhibit. Beautifully laid out, plenty to read and learn. Inspirational and took me back to the days when Mona lived. Wish the exhibit could have stayed longer. Would have returned.

Very impressed with the detail of the Lewis and Clark display. Learned interesting facts. Never knew there were so many different kinds of alcohols produced in Kentucky. Large display of miniatures.

History is told through the weapons of history and how they played a part in the world. There are many other types of exhibits that are of interest on a rotating basis that are well worth the time.

We wanted to stop by to see the new KBT welcome center. We found the history of Bourbon in Louisville and Kentucky fascinating. We loved the Lewis and Clark exhibit and it’s interactive experience. We really enjoyed it.

In my opinion, Fraziermuseum website is much friendlier than TripAdvisor to navigate. That being said - $12 adult ticket

More suggestions for a first time visit? (5 Replies)
Husband and I are bringing our two kids (11 and 14) to Louisville for an extended weekend this summer. It will be out first visit there. After doing some research I've come up with a list of things to do and places to eat. Does anyone have any other suggestions? We are staying in an AirBnB in the Highlands off of Bardstown Rd. We will have a car and prefer casual dining. Things to do: • Louisville Slugger Museum • Mega Cave for zip lining • Churchill Downs • Frazier History Museum •...More

If you go to Churchill, make sure to go to the derby museum. I agree about Mark's feed store being overrated. I like the comfy cow better than the homemade pie kitchen. Also, i think Clifton's or Impellizeri's is better pizza than Wick's. The waterfront park area is fun to rent bikes. If you have time to take in a baseball game, slugger field is a really nice minor league park. Have a great time!

Family weekend in or around Louisville (5 Replies)
I'm trying to plan a weekend trip to Louisville in September with some special circumstances and need some creative ideas on where to stay. We will be driving from southeast Michigan with my parents, who are in their 80's and my teenage son. My father has mobility issues; not in a wheelchair yet and can negotiate steps but we would need to minimize walking. My mother, on the other hand, moves faster than I do... but has trouble sitting for long periods. Yup, a difficult combination. The...More

not sure if you will be coming through cincinnati or not but half way between there and louisvile is a nice state park, General Butler state park. It has rooms, not sure but might have cabins too. They have a lodge with a buffet. Ky has a very nice park system with different kinds of accomadations. Just a thought, check it out online
The Eye of Napoleon (1 Replies)
I enjoyed a special exhibition at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville --The Eye of Napoleon. It featured over 200 works of Napoleon Bonaparte’s paintings, sculpture, jewels, books, furniture and vintage clothing, including his hat. If you haven't seen it, time is running out. The Eye of Napoleon runs through March 2, 2014.
