Our Trip to The Frazier History Museum
by: Susie Blackcrow
The Frazier Museum is one of the largest museums in the country. The Frazier Museum features one of the most impressive Soldier Toy Galleries in the United States. The Frazier Museum has been newly reinterpreted and vastly expanded. The best collection of soldier toys makes it a more enjoyable place for the children and all those with young hearts too. It has 16,000 toy soldiers and 10,000 on display in the toy soldier gallery. They allow the children to get them in their hands and play with them.
This gallery came into existence by the love of Mr. Stewart with the collection of soldier toys. The father of Mr. Stewart encouraged him to collect these toys and Dr. John P. Stewart II, the Father of Mr. Stewart, thought about finding a place to shelf the collection of his loving son. Then the collection of the rare, unique and historical soldier toys presented on Sep, 27 as The Stewart’s Toy Soldier Gallery. In 2016 Summer Magazine boasted that The Stewart’s Collection at The Frazier History Museum is undoubtedly the most important collection in the United States.
I can’t explain in words how much fun we had at The Frazier History Museum. It’s all about the playing as well the interesting knowledge about the life of soldiers full of adventures. There were the soldiers of all shapes, sizes and material (tin, paper, wood, and plastic). We found the toys made by the W. Britain Company, began in 1845 with the production of the variety of mechanical toys.
There were certain toys that ma
de my visit more enjoyable. These were:
US Cavalry Display
Vertunni, Officer 7th Hussars
22nd Regiment Infantry Line in Winter Dress
Scotts Guards Display
Boxed Famous Football Teams Series
The best thing we found was the cooperative staff of the museum; they allowed us to play with many of the toys as much as we want to. The impressive toys and the most interesting adventures of soldiers were breathtaking. We got to know the actual life of the soldiers and gained a deeper appreciation for their sacrifices in our homeland.
We felt bad when we were nearing our time to leave the place. That was the best historical museum I found in my entire life yet. This was great fun and I didn’t want to leave. So I decided to visit again soon because it was not only the fun, but also interesting and a knowledgeable place for both me and my children.
The Frazier History Museum is the best place for the kids to go. It’s important for kids to have fun in a place with a lot of knowledge. We all prefer places where can have fun and learn at the same time.
