THE FRAZIER HISTORY MUSEUM UNVEILS NEW DISPLAYS AND GARDEN AREA
There is always much to see and learn at the Frazier Museum. Many great exhibits are featured year round. Now the museum adds a new garden space and bourbon exhibit.
The park and garden space will be open to the public during museum hours. The garden space is located on the east side of the museum building between the Frazier and the neighboring brick building. The linear park has tables with chairs and benches where people can sit and enjoy the native Kentucky plantings of ghost ferns, service berry shrubs, Kentucky coffee and locust trees and many more species picked by world-renowned landscape artist John Carloftis.
From the park stairs lead to a second story rooftop garden with more unusual native Kentucky plantings. On the south side of the rooftop space there is a balcony that juts out and offers a spectacular view of the West Main Street Bourbon district.
A new entrance - called the Cube - will open soon and this will be where guests enter for the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Welcome Center. This will be the official starting point for the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail Welcome Center and the "Spirit of Kentucky" exhibit both open August 25. The new exhibit will highlight the history of Bourbon - Americas only native spirit - through interactive exhibits and display a bottle collection that will include nearly every brand of bourbon being produced in Kentucky!
Here is where you can get answers to any and all Bourbon tourism questions you might need to plan your excursions around the state and in Louisville.
