  • Lovely wedding venue. Rooftop views of the river and the city. Weather was perfect mid-October. Guests were able to see much of museum's interesting exhibits. Catered buffet, open bar, music and dancing. Parking behind building is a bit of a walk. Inside there are elevators.
  • Wonderful place. Exhibits provide content on ways in which bourbon was made. The bourbon collection room is amazing!!! It has all brands of bourbon that is currently sold on the market. Next to it, there is a room depicting a bar. It’s also beautiful. The museum also gives the history of Kentucky, and even touch base on the part on native Americans.
  • This is a museum about the history of Kentucky and it does a great job of doing that. It has a great exhibit on the making of bourbon and the history of bourbon. I bought some bourbon in the gift shop because it just felt like the right thing to do. Really attractive museum.
  • This was my favorite part of our day trip to Louisville. We only looked at the third floor (the bourbon part) and I think that's not a bad idea if that's all you're interested in and you have other things you're doing that day. The third-floor bourbon exhibit was so well put together, and I do not say that lightly; I truly wasn't impressed with a different museum we saw that day, but the Frazier Museum was *mwah.* It complemented very well the "Kentucky Bourbon Country" field guide, which is where I first heard of it. Content was well written, well presented, and well curated. There were some real gems in the bourbon culture/history interactive panels about Prohibition, like media from the time advocating temperance and a woman who was known for organizing attacks on sellers of elicit alcohol, lol, which I will post here.
  • Best museum in town. Has a few floors you start at top floor. Has an elevator. No parking lot. Parking is our front by meter free on weekends. Can find tickets on Groupon.
