This was an interesting museum including the building. The miniature collection will blow your mind! Plan to spend at least half a day to take in all the exhibits. The "shows" are also worth attending, especially if you have children.

It is a nice, small Museum. There are many main stay items to see and read about. Every few months, they have a special event. So check their calendar of events

We came to view the Bourbon exhibit and found it informative, fascinating, and all-around fun. Give yourself time to explore the history behind the bourbons--it was exciting to see so many relics from the past that contributed to today's industry. There is also a store...More

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