Come join in on a summer visit to the Fraunces Museum and then enjoy a beverage or two in the Tavern following.
We will have our own guide for our group. The tour will last approximately an hour (1pm - 2pm) The Museum focuses on the American Revolution and Colonial New York as these time periods relate to the historic site.
Fraunces Tavern® Museum is a complex of five buildings with nine galleries, including the famous Long Room where George Washington bade farewell to officers of the Continental Army on December 4th, 1783. The Museum houses an extensive collection of over 3000 Colonial America, Revolutionary War, and Early Republic artifacts, including a lock of George Washington’s hair and the world’s largest collection of John Ward Dunsmore paintings. Visitors to Fraunces Tavern® Museum also can experience monthly public evening lectures.
Admission charge is $7 (seniors $4).
Note: there are stairs to climb to the Museum, there are two floors.
I need RSVPs for the Museum visit to provide them with numbers; if you fancy just coming for the Tavern visit we will likely be headed there for about 2pm and into the Tallmadge Room.
