Suits of Armor
A knight in the 14th - 16th centuries often had three custom-made suits of armor-- one for battle, one for jousting and one for court.
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.
Changes to Kids Club program- effective January 2013
As a non-profit organization, the Frazier Museum relies on the support of private donors, foundations and corporations to fulfill our educational mission. Museum Members are among those we depend on the most. So, starting in January 2013, the benefits that Kids Club members have been receiving (free admission on SECOND SATURDAYS, for example) will be reserved for those covered under a current Frazier Museum membership.
That’s because we want to show our best supporters—museum members—that we value their patronage. To show them our appreciation, starting in 2013, museum members can look forward to exclusive, enhanced programming at each SECOND SATURDAY family day. In addition to the planned activities that are available for all guests, Museum Members will get a little bit more! We’ve got behind-the-scenes visits, additional crafts and activities, special sessions with visiting guest presenters and meet-and-greets with characters from our Historic Interpretations Department all on tap just for Members!
Starting in January 2013, Kids Club members who are not Frazier Museum members will be required to purchase a Museum Membership to receive free admission to monthly SECOND SATURDAY family days, as the current Kids Club program is being dissolved. Kids Club members will also have the option to pay regular museum admission fees if they choose to visit on SECOND SATURDAY.
But don’t fret! Kids Club members have the opportunity to become a Frazier Museum member for an extra special price! If your family has enjoyed participating in the Frazier Museum’s hands-on, fun approach to learning on SECOND SATURDAYS, become a member to enjoy everything we have to offer throughout the month and all year round.
