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

See the tools of war as you've never seen them before. Not just the types of weaponry used all the way back to the middle ages, but how they were used, why and the outcome of many battles. They have things like Geronimo's bow. As one of the most fierce Apache warriors, the story of Geronimo is a fabulous one.... More

The other floors go through history of the country and gun collections. Historical... More

I do like to visit a museum when I am in a new town/city. This was a very interesting one. I am English and found myself really interested in my own countries stuff that they were showing, The royal Armouries stuff. The Special NFL stuff was very good too. I enjoyed the 'actor' playing the part of the character too... More
