Learn & Play
The Frazier Museum is the only place in the world outside Great Britain to permanently house and display Royal Armouries artifacts.
SECOND SATURDAYs treat visitors to a “little bit extra” during their trip to the museum. On the second Saturday of each month, the Frazier History Museum offers engaging games, crafts, activities and historical performances revolving around a selected theme.
Some months may feature activities on all three floors of the museum, others may involve lessons or games based in our Education Center, but all months involve entertaining, educational, family-friendly happenings!
SECOND SATURDAY activities are always free with paid admission.
