Take our new audio tour of the Museum’s core exhibition narrated by the Museum’s President and CEO Dr. R. Scott Stephenson, and featuring the “voices” of Phillis Wheatley, the first published African American female poet, and Baroness Frederika von Riedesel, who aided the wounded and journaled about her experience.

NEW: Take the When Women Lost the Vote audio tour, narrated by Director of Education and Community Engagement Adrienne Whaley, to navigate this special exhibition and dig deeper into its objects and stories. When Women Lost the Vote explores the experiences of women from many backgrounds in the Revolutionary Era. In particular, it uncovers the little-known history of the nation’s first women voters, who cast ballots in New Jersey over a century before the passage of the 19th Amendment.
