Activity Overview

With its historic performances, interactive displays, "touch carts," lectures, and permanent and temporary exhibits, the Frazier Museum brings history to life in its attempt to educate and entertain the public.

Permanent exhibits include our country's oldest Civil War memorial known as the 32nd Indiana Infantry Monument or "Bloedner Monument," and the Toy Soldier Collection, consisting of more than 10,000 figurines - soldiers from around the world depicting such historical events as Queen Elizabeth II's coronation ceremony.

Temporary exhibits created at the museum have included the following: “WWII: 48 Local Stories That Changed the World,” "Pirates: Treasure & Treachery,” "Water Works: 150 Years of Louisville Water Company,” and more.
