Frazier History Museum

More about Expanded Bourbon Experience and Visitor Center in Partnership with the Kentucky Distillers' Association

Through this partnership with the KDA, the Frazier intends to provide an authentic and inclusive look at the heritage and history of Bourbon, one of the state’s most alluring and signature products. Preliminary plans include Bourbon-related exhibits and interactive learning experiences that focus on the various aspects of the Bourbon story including the people, places and innovations that have made Bourbon what it is today.

The Frazier will provide space and management services for the permanent Bourbon exhibit as an extension of our mission to showcase national and international issues and events from local and regional perspectives. 

It is expected that the exhibit, and its related services, will require the Frazier to expand to the three buildings adjacent to the museum on West Main Street.  The buildings were a gift to the museum from Laura Frazier and Catherine Frazier Joy, when their father, Frazier Museum founder Owsley Frazier, passed away two and a half years ago. 

Most importantly, the Museum will remain dedicated to continuing the exhibits, permanent collection displays and learning programs that are the hallmark of the institution.

We are just beginning this exciting journey, one that we feel will add significantly to the Museum’s value as a beloved community asset. We look forward to sharing much more news about its progress with you as this dream becomes a reality!
