Owner description: 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.

“Unique history on display”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Went there as a side trip to a business convention. Tours are at your own pace. Very interesting display of Medieval swords, jousting and battle techniques of the age. Live demo of sword fight was educational and realistic.
Most creative display of armour suits I have ever seen outside of Europe. Well designed, lots of notes and memos describing the items on display. Firearms were very well done.
All staff people were extremely helpful. A definite "must do" at least once, and if this piques your war history interest, you could spend days here. Some interesting revolving installations add even more interest.

very well done, had an interesting visit, was fascinated by the English armor even though this isn't usually my cup of tea. Also check out the gift shop.

Plan to spend a few hours wandering through the different exhibits if you're either a history or especially and armaments nut.
