My husband just sent me this.
Maybe the rest of you knew, especially people in that area, but this is cool.

I saw the royal armory when it was in the White Tower in the late 1970's, but
last time I was in England they had moved it to Leeds.

What will Kentucky send back? What's some good American stuff Brits might
want to see?


Royal Armouries plans US exhibit

The Royal Armouries in Leeds has secured a permanent exhibition space in

the American state of Kentucky.

Royal Armouries USA will occupy the entire third floor of the new Frazier

Historical Arms Museum, which is due to open in Louisville in May.

The exhibition will present the history of the British Isles from 1066 to

the early 1900s. Attractions will include audio visual and multi media

displays, life sized tableaux and nearly 400 artefacts.

It is believed to be the first time a national museum in the UK has opened

a branch in America. Museum officials are hoping the relationship between

the two museums will flourish, leading to a possible twinning arrangement

between Louisville and Leeds.
