History After Hours: Bros and Foes

Rules of Duel
Was Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton's duel unavoidable? Could they have found another way to resolve their argument? Were they being honorable or just angry? Join Museum Curator Mark Turdo to find out the surprising answers to these questions and see if you would make a different decision.

Debate Vs. Dialogue
Join representatives from the Conflict Resolution Program at the University of Pennsylvania as they introduce several games and role playing scenarios that will provide guests with helpful life skills. Their scenarios come from RP@Penn (Restorative Practices at Penn), the program’s newest initiative where they integrate restorative practices into campus culture by using it as a means of building community, addressing community harm and bias, and easing re-entry. 

One-Two Rum Punch Challenge
Local restaurants and distilleries such as Art in the Age, Manatawny Still Works, MilkBoy South Street, Charles Jacquin's, Bluebird Distilling, and Brulee will put their own twist on one of the 18th-cenutry’s most popular beverages. Rum punch usually consisted of fresh spring water, sugar, lemon or lime juice, and, of course, rum. Who will deliver the best (rum) punch? You decide! 

Escape Room
Will you make friends or foes? Try to beat the clock and escape!

Our History After Hours series features extended evening hours from 5 – 8 p.m., special themed programs, happy hour food and drink specials, and full access to the Museum’s exhibits including timed screenings of Washington's War Tent.
