Battle of Hastings
The Norman’s victory at the 1066 Battle of Hastings was largely due to their horses having saddles and stirrups, which gave mounted soldiers more stability.
SECOND SATURDAY Family Days at the Frazier History Museum offer engaging games, crafts, activities and historical performances revolving around a selected theme – all included in the regular price of admission!
Each SECOND SATURDAY features a new theme and a unique line-up of activities that often involve visiting our exhibitions and participating in family-friendly lessons and games in our Education Center.
SECOND SATURDAY activities are always free with paid admission.
Upcoming SECOND SATURDAY Family Days:
March 8, 2014, Women’s History Month
11 AM – 3 PM
The highlight of last summer’s “Chicks Rule” Camp at the Frazier was a guest performance by the popular local recording artists the Sandpaper Dolls. These three talented ladies mesmerized everyone in the room with their unique and beautiful a cappella style. We simply could not wait to invite them back in 2014 and we are excited to announce that they will be performing at this month’s SECOND SATURDAY FAMILY DAY at the Frazier! The Sandpaper Dolls’ performance will take place from 12:30 -1 PM in the first floor theater.
This exclusive concert is just one part of the afternoon’s family-focused activities included with regular museum admission. To celebrate Women’s History Month, we will also be offering a variety of hands-on learning opportunities and live interpretations featuring prominent women of history such as Annie Oakley and Dolley Madison. A brand new performance will also feature Long Meg of Westminster, the legendary heroine of Elizabethan England.
