Frazier International History Museum
The Frazier International History Museum, a 100,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art museum in downtown Louisville’s historic Doerhoefer Building, is a collaboration with the Royal Armouries, Britain’s oldest national museum. That partnership, the only one the Royal Armouries has entered into anywhere, makes the Frazier Museum unique in the U.S. and in the world.
In combination with the extensive and wide-ranging collection of founder Owsley Brown Frazier, the Royal Armouries collection allows the Frazier to cover 1,000 years of history. The museum brings that history to life every day through live interpretations by costumed interpreters, multimedia presentations, educational programming, and hands-on learning. In addition, the museum periodically sponsors special events and exhibits.
