Frazier International History Museum

This morning I took my daughter to the Frazier International History Museum, which is located in Louisville, Kentucky. This 100,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art museum encompasses three floors, with a portion of Britain’s Royal Armouries collection on the third floor, and the Frazier’s permanent collections on the second and first floors. My daughter and I went straight to the third floor to view exhibits that trace Britain’s military history with arms and armour from the Middle Ages to modern weaponry from the 1920’s.

Although the other collections are well worth viewing, they didn’t hold our interest as well. Daniel Boone’s family Bible, however, is an eye-catcher, and the new short film on how Hollywood skewed perceptions of the American West was definitely worth the admission price. This museum is a top-notch state-of-the-art masterpiece. I continue to wonder why it’s located in Louisville, rather than in Chicago…

  1. Why not Louisville? After all Louisville is the 16th largest city in the USA and it’s growing fast. In my opinion, the Frazier is the crown jewel of Louisville’s growing attractions.

    Louisville has been growing steadily over the past ten years. The Frazier is an amazing example of how Louisville’s mainstreet is being revitalized. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  2. Hi Alprunty – I can agree with you wholeheartedly, really – after all, the Frazier was where I took my daughter first when we arrived downtown. And, I think the arts are much more progressive here than, say, in Chicago. Take Lauren Argo, for instance. When was the last time you viewed a woman living in a window for art’s sake? But, like you, I’m impatient for more…

  3. How true about the arts… however I learned about Lauren Argo too late to take a loo at her.

    The Frazier is a special place indeed. And it’s something that the Adults can learn from too… the Louisville Science Center is too small child oriented and you see one baseball bat you have the general idea about baseball bats.

    The Frazeir on the other hand will be rotating exhibits. They have an amazing photo gallery on display from WW One now. I think Louisville is on it’s way to being a cultural and educational center.
