Day at the Frazier Museum

Today we went to the Frazier Arms Museum, a large Museum in downtown Louisville. Our Grandparents got us a years pass as a family for Christmas since we enjoyed it so much on our former visits.
On special exhibit they have the remains of a slave ship, the Henrietta Marie, a remake of a slave traders office and shackles from the ruins of the ship. The thing that made it come most alive for us was how you could walk through the middle passage (where the slaves where kept) of a remake of the Henrietta Marie. I couldn't imagine staying in that small dark area for a day let alone several weeks or months.
The interpreters at Frazier are really good also. Today we saw a cowboy tell what it was like on the cattle drives and a double handed sword combat. The boys really liked both of those!
We finished up the visit by going through the gift shop. Andrew couldn't resist buying a toy knight. Our day at the Museum was lots of fun and we learned a lot, too!
