Liberty Hall Museum has a great lineup of special events for everyone in the family to enjoy this March as we usher in spring.
A great event for the family is Liberty Hall's Dr. Seuss' Birthday Party on Saturday, March 4 from 10 a.m. - noon. Visitors will enjoy a yummy breakfast snack bar, make a Cat-in-the-Hat hat, go fishing for One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and take photos with silly props and the Cat in the Hat. There also will be a Seussical the Musical sing along. There is limited space left, so reserve your spot today. Admission is $25 for each child with one free adult; additional adults are $5 each.
Due to demand, Liberty Hall has created a fun night out for adult fans of the Broadway musical Hamilton. On Friday, March 10 from 7 - 9 pm, "raise a glass to freedom" at our Tavern Night with Hamilton. This adults-only evening will include a Hamilton throw down to determine the biggest fan, tavern games and activities, and of course, the hit music from the show. Enjoy some favorite colonial cocktails and food because there "ain't no party like the Federalist Party!" Must be 21 years old or older to attend. Space is limited, so purchase your tickets today. Admission is $30 per person, $25 for museum members and Kean University alumni.
Liberty Hall is excited for its popular event, Ladies' Night Out: A Night of Vintage Fashion on Friday, March 24 from 7 - 9 p.m. Grab some friends and enjoy a fashion-forward ladies' night out. Guests will be treated to wine and cheese while getting an exclusive look at Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University's exquisite collection of vintage clothing and accessories. There will also be a LuLaRoe pop-up event. Talk with a consultant from the fashion brand and browse through LuLaRoe clothes available for purchase. Admission is $25 per person, $20 for museum members and Kean alumni. Reservations are required.
"We love hosting this event and seeing what people think of fashions from years ago. It's always fun to see our guests admire the fashion collection at Liberty Hall," said Lacey Bongard, Liberty Hall's coordinator of museum programs.
Liberty Hall's History Happy Hour series continues on Thursday, March 30 from 7 - 9 p.m. Have a drink with your friends at Liberty Hall Museum while you sip, snack and socialize and learn some fun history facts. We'll share stories about all the strong and entertaining women who ran the family house for over 240 years. It's a great way to celebrate Women's History Month! Admission is $25 per person, $20 for museum members and Kean alumni.
Back by popular demand is Liberty Hall's teen night - Friday Night with Hamilton - on Friday, March 31 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Teens had such a great time at the first-ever teen Hamilton event last month that they demanded more. Themed around the Broadway hit musical, teenagers will enjoy a night out filled with all things Alexander Hamilton: what his life was like, colonial crafts and tavern games, and maybe even an epic showdown like in the song "Cabinet Battle #1." The evening will also include light refreshments and Hamilton music for everyone to sing along to. Admission is $25 per teen. It is a drop off event, so parents must be at Liberty Hall at 8:30 p.m. for pick up. Reservations required as space is limited.
