Fridays with Farley...a Dose of Useless Tidbits

good stuff...
The Stewart Toy Soldier Gallery
The newly-reinterpreted and vastly expanded toy soldier collection at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville, KY is not only bigger - it’s better, more valuable, and more rare than nearly any other toy soldier collection on public display in the world today. For the first time, the Stewart Toy Soldier Gallery will bring the toy soldier experience out from behind the glass, beyond collectors and aficionados, and into the hands of children (both young and at heart) who simply want to play.

One of the largest in the country

The Frazier is proud to present one of the premiere collections of toy soldiers in the United States and one of the largest collection of historic toy soldiers on public display in the world. With over 16,000 toy soldiers in its collection and over 10,000 soon-to-be on display made by distinguished makers of toy soldiers from all around the world, the Frazier is going next level with its historic collection. Housed in the new Stewart Toy Soldier Gallery, this exhibition will allow visitors to browse makers, styles and periods of treasured miniatures, while using their imaginations to experience a tiny world of play though hands-on interactives.

A small window to a bigger historical picture

The Stewart Toy Soldier Gallery is possible thanks to a generous donation of toy soldiers to the Frazier by Charles Stewart of Frankfort, Kentucky. Stewart has been a collector of toy soldiers and toys all of his life. His love of toy soldiers began as a boy and continues today with a collection of nearly 13,000 world class figures representing approximately 114 historic toy soldier and figure manufacturers. Stewart’s collection is still growing. “Charles’ generous gifts continue the legacy of Owsley Brown Frazier in building a world-class collection for visitors to enjoy in the heart of Louisville, Kentucky,” said Frazier President, Penny Pearler.
