Frazier History Museum

Live Historical Interpretations by Frazier Museum Teaching Artists

The Frazier Museum brings visitors face to face with some of the people and events that changed the world forever, as well as with more ordinary people whose moving and important stories you’ve probably never heard.

One of the ways we do this is through live performances by our staff of costumed actors/historians known as “Teaching Artists.”

Every day, museum visitors enjoy the culmination of countless hours of research, script writing, editing and rehearsing by our Interpretations Department. We collectively have developed 90 historic performances and demonstrations, which are presented in rotation daily in specific locations throughout the galleries and in our Brown-Forman Theatre.

These include Annie Oakley, Elizabethan Swordmaster, George Rogers Clark, Catherine the Great, Olaudah Equiano and many others. Read a complete list of historical interpretations with descriptions.
