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.

It's all a bit static.

If you are interested in military history then you'll like it, but it could be more involving.

Good location. Was impressed with all that you got to see and experience with this museum. Not just an "arms" museum. 14 year old liked this better than the slugger museum.

This is a great experience and worth every penny of the admission. The exhibits are very, very well done and they regularly bring in top notch visiting exhibits. This is a Louisville jewel.

The museum was set up very well and the live presentations were great. We only allowed ourselves 3 hours but could easily have spent longer.

Actually visited here in March of 2013 when our son attended State Governor's Cup. Thought maybe he might see some things that would help in his competition. It was interesting to walk through and see the different eras represented and how they represented them. Did not have time to go back this year or we would have again.
