Frazier History Museum exhibition unlocks the mysteries of the ancient samurai

The Exclusive Frazier History Museum exhibition unlocks the mysteries of the ancient samurai.

It's an epic display of myth-busting secrets, exquisite artifacts and interactive features related to this mysterious, and misunderstood, culture.

Samurai were as artistic and philosophical as they were dangerous.

The exhibit has artifacts spanning 1,500 years- including kimonos, wood block prints, theater masks, religious items and tea ceremony objects.

Centuries old armor made of iron, silk and gilded metal showcase how the samurai used their artistry to convey ferocity and instill fear.

Personal items, such as painted scrolls and screens, reveal a more intimate side of samurai culture and help expose the role of women in samurai society.

One of the most impressive collections of samurai-related objects ever on display in the U.S.
