Overview

The Frazier History Museum is a world-class museum that provides an unforgettable journey through history with ever-changing and interactive exhibits, daily performances by costumed interpreters and engaging special events and programs. To complement our amazing permanent collection, which includes thousands of items from famous world leaders and one of the country's largest toy soldier displays, the Frazier Museum offers an ever-changing selection of intriguing temporary exhibits. Every day, we offer live historic performances, bringing visitors face to face with some of the people and events that changed the world forever, as well as with average people whose moving and important stories you've probably never heard. The Frazier Museum is located on downtown Louisville's "Museum Row" in a beautiful 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility originally called the "Doerhoefer Building," a late 19th century, Chicago-style commercial structure. The Frazier Museum has three floors of exhibits, an education center, Museum Store and tournament ring, as well as event spaces available for rent, including a beautiful Rooftop Garden featuring seasonal blooming flowers and our Fourth Floor Loft space that accommodates up to 360 people seated.

We got there about 45 minutes before they closed. We really didn't have enough time to read all the literature on the displays. The artwork is great, too. I think you need about 2 hours (minimum) to go through and read everything.

The exhibits are interesting and well thought out and not boring as they are mostly multi-media exhibits. Especially loved the Lewis and Clark exhibit and the one on Prohibition. An unexpected gem for anyone who loves history and local flavor.

We enjoyed the displays and interactive exhibits very much. Several interesting objects, gift shop was reasonably priced. Will return with our older grandchildren. Probably not great for under 8 years of age.

We used the city pass so it was discounted. If you plan to see more while in town look into that pass!
