Students are filled with curiosity. As crucial as it is to read about history, it is equally, if not more important to see, touch and relive history. Whether it is playing with toys from more than 200 years ago or writing with a quill pen as our founding fathers once did, a trip to Liberty Hall gives students these opportunities.

Our programs meet a variety of New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards and are conducted by museum educators who have a genuine love of history. Our hope for every student that walks through our doors is that he or she leaves with a greater appreciation for both their lives and our nation's history.
