If you like to see lots of old lead figures placed to be a replica of an event then this is for you. Lots of bourbon in bottles and history on making bourbon. Will not go again.

I have visited the Frazier many times over the years. They have hosted many blockbuster exhibits that have been impressive, informative and interactive. Some of those were focused on Leonardo da Vinci, Princess Diana and Napoleon Bonaparte, to name just a few. They have not...More

The museum had nicely done exhibits of Louis and Clark, as well as the history of Bourbon, the Kentucky derby, and Kentucky in general. It's a nice place to spend a couple hours.

It should be 2 1/2 stars!! Maybe it needs to be updated since the Royal Armory pieces are gone. If it wasn't for the Harlan Hubbard exhibit this would have been a wasted 2 hour one-way road trip. And FOURTEEN BUCKS!! Are you kidding me?!?...More

I think they are both doable in 1 day. The Ali Center is smaller, so there's less to see. When my husband & myself travel, we try to do 2 activities a day, separated by lunch & we're seniors too. Good luck w/ your... More

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