This Halloween weekend, join us at the Museum for Revolutionary frights and fun. Hear spooky stories from the Revolutionary War and learn how early Americans carved turnips - not pumpkins - to ward away evil spirits. Pick up custom pumpkin-carving templates inspired by the Museum’s collection in a special Halloween-themed take-and-make bag. Come in costume to get a prize!
While you’re here, don’t miss our new special exhibition When Women Lost the Vote: A Revolutionary Story, 1776-1807, which explores the little-known story of women and free people of color voting in Revolutionary-era New Jersey. The exhibition is integrated within the Museum’s core exhibition and connected with an audio tour. Activity-packed, printed “Family Guides” are available to help all ages explore the exhibit. Be sure to cast a ballot at our voting selfie station and pose for a photo to get an “I Vote” sticker just days before the real presidential election.
Please note: Costume masks are permitted for guests ages 12 and under. Costume masks are not a substitute for a face mask or shield, which is required for ages 5+ during this time.
