I love history and Frazier was a really nice way to spend a few hours. The weapons and the guns especially are great and there are so many. All in all, I found it to be interesting and entertaining.

This modern museum is enjoyable to walk through. The atmosphere is clean and the staff is friendly. They have three stories of history that included a lot of interesting information that the average citizen would not know. The price was very fair (around $20 for my wife and I). It was a good way to spend 2 hours in downtown... More

The Frazier is in conjunction with the British Royal Armouries. The collection of artifacts is first rate! The exhibits cover the last 1000 years. I enjoyed the interpretation of Mary Miller, a person I knew nothing about. The presenter was personable and quite knowledgeable. In all, this is a Really good place for those interested in history. I will return!!!

disappointed there was no significant military discount. Laughed at the the Tudor England section of the museum that skips some royals in the chronology which paints a skewed picture of history. NFL exhibit was way overpriced.

I've been here a couple of times, if you are interested in medieval europe and antique fireamrs this is one place you have to see. It has a terrific collection of colt handguns. The exhibits are well presented and very life-like the museum has special showings during the year focusing on particular collections, ages or historical events. One in particular... More

I gave into visiting the museum. If you are into American History and Medieval Times, then this will be the place. Very nice setup and flow to the museum. To me it just seemed like a very large collection of old guns. I believe I read that this is the largest Royal Amory collection, outside of Great Britain. There were... More

I have been to this museum a few times. It is a good place to take out-of-town guests. One of the best firearms exhibits in the country

I went to the Frazier to see the Princess Dianna exhibit last fall. The museum was a wonderful experience and once we saw the exhibit, we were able to tour the rest of the museum too. We spent the day there. It close to the Slugger Muesem and so many other attractions all within a block of each other. Lots... More

Glad we stopped into the Frazier Museum before leaving town...the NFL exhibit was very cool along with the American Flags. Very educational and a great Sunday afternoon. Will definitely be back soon!

My family loves this museum. We spent the day. One of the favorite aspects is the demonstrations. Today's interpreters, Eric and Kelly, did a fantastic job of demonstrating medieval sword techniques. The museum has some temporary exhibits, so check the website to see what is there..."Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame" today was the last... More
