Frazier International History Museum

Frazier International History Museum

The Frazier museum contains unique artifacts including the ceremonial sword of Founding Father Josiah Bartlett, the family bible of the legendary pioneer Daniel Boone, and the original "Big Stick" of President Theodore Roosevelt. Each day, different presentations and events are held within the museum. The museum's second floor houses the permanent collection of arms and related artifacts made between the 16th and 20th century, mostly of American origin. The third floor houses the Royal Armouries Collection. Visitors can trace the history of Britain’s Royal Armouries (including the famous Tower of London) and European arms dating back to the 11th century in a series of periodically changing displays.

We hope you enjoy our work.
