Why support the Frazier Museum?
The Frazier Museum is making an undeniable contribution to the cultural and tourism fabric of our area. As the exclusive home of the Royal Armouries USA, we’re the only institution in the world outside of Great Britain to permanently display Royal Armouries artifacts.
The strength of this rare partnership, coupled with an equally extraordinary and broad American collection, demonstrates that Louisville is a contender on a global playing field. We strive to present high-quality educational programs, entertaining special events and an ever-changing selection of engaging temporary exhibits to give locals and tourists, alike, a reason to come back again and again.
That said, one of the most important things we do is help fill the gaps in history education– our aim is to do so in a fun and culturally relevant way. Through local partnerships with Jefferson County Public Schools, the University of Louisville and Western Kentucky University, and international partnerships with the Royal Armouries and the University of Huddersfield (England), we’re creating exceptional learning opportunities for kindergarten through post-graduate that cannot be found anywhere else in the country. We’re helping create educated citizens in a nation that prides itself on its “for the people, by the people” way of life.
The Frazier Museum is a non-profit organization that relies on the support of private individuals, corporations and foundations. Your generosity helps us combat this intellectual epidemic and achieve our vision of creating a community where citizens use their knowledge of history to avoid conflict and resolve problems.
