March Events Announced At Liberty Hall Museum At Kean University
Liberty Hall Museum has a great line up of special events for everyone in the family this March to usher in spring.
In celebration of Women's History Month, Liberty Hall is hosting a special workshop for home schoolers on Wednesday, March 14 from 10 a.m. - noon. The program will teach elementary level students about the women of Liberty Hall who challenged the status quo and bravely faced adversity. Through primary source documents, original artifacts, storytelling, and hands-on activities, the students will explore the roles of Revolutionary War heroes, financiers, Civil War nurses, and more.
"We have had great success in creating programming for home school groups and are excited to be offering another great workshop for families," said Maryellen McVeigh, coordinator of education. "It's a great way to educate children outside the classroom and for other home school families to network with each other."
Admission is $10 per student and $6 per adult. Reservations are required. Liberty Hall also suggests packing a lunch to dine with fellow homeschoolers after the program.
Liberty Hall is excited for its annual event, Ladies' Night Out: A Night of Vintage Fashion on Friday, March 23 from 7 - 9 p.m. 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, followed by an informative and entertaining talk on the history of fashion.
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 and $20 for museum members and Kean alumni. Reservations are required by March 20.
March also features Liberty Hall's annual Easter Egg Hunt! On Saturday, March 31, children will explore the grounds of Liberty Hall, searching for hidden plastic eggs filled with holiday treats. A photo opp with the Easter Bunny caps off the event.
Two sessions are available for reservations - 10 a.m. or noon. Make your reservation today. Space is limited to 100 children per session and the sessions fill up quickly. Admission is $10 for each child (1 free adult per child). Additional adults are $5.
