“Our students were exposed to history in a way they had never seen before…. Many of the students told me the Frazier Museum was their favorite trip of the summer.”
- McFerran Family Resource Center, Summer Coordinator

“The children loved how interactive that it was. They wanted to "pretend" play about Lewis and Clark the rest of the week!”
–Primrose Daycare, Teacher
