FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 30, 2017
UNION, N.J. – Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University has a full slate of seasonal programming for all ages in the month of February.
“Public tours of the museum resume on April 4, but Liberty Hall at Kean University is open for group reservations of 10 people or more, and we’ve got great special events planned,” said Bill Schroh, Jr., Liberty Hall’s director of museum operations. “There is something for people of all ages, so now is a great time to grab a group of friends and schedule a private tour or attend one of our many seasonal events.”
For the first time ever, Liberty Hall has created an event just for teens. On Friday, February 3 from 6:30–8:30 p.m., teens can go Hamilton crazy at Friday Night with Hamilton! Themed around the Broadway hit musical, teenagers will enjoy a night out filled with all things Alexander Hamilton: what his life was like, colonial crafts and tavern games, and maybe even an epic showdown like in the song “Cabinet Battle #1.” The evening will also include light refreshments and Hamilton music for everyone to sing along to. Admission is $25 per teen. It is a drop off event, so parents must be at Liberty Hall at 8:30 p.m. for pick up. Reservations required as space is limited. Save your spot now – reservations are filling up fast.
If you are looking for a special Valentine’s Day activity, Liberty Hall is throwing a My Little Man & Me: Valentine’s Day Party on Saturday, February 11 from 1–3 p.m. Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles – have some fun with that special little man in your life! Enjoy games, crafts, snacks, punch and a photo booth area while making special memories. Admission is $25 for one child and accompanying adult (admission for each additional adult is $5), and $20 for museum members.
Liberty Hall’s incredibly popular Frozen Ball invites participants to dress up as their favoritecharacter from the movie! The fun afternoon will have children making crafts, playing games, and warming up at our delicious hot chocolate bar with some sweet treats. Admission is $25 for one child and accompanying adult (admission for each additional adult is $5), and $20 for museum members. Due to demand, Liberty Hall has added a third date and is now accepting reservations for Sunday, February 12.
Adults looking for some winter blues-busting fun are invited to Liberty Hall’s History Happy Hour on Thursday, February 23 from 7–9 p.m. Mingle while you sip, snack and socialize, and learn some fun history facts. February’s topic is travel. The Kean family traveled all over the world from the late 1800s through the early 1900s – can you figure out where? Join us as we follow in their footsteps and share their travels. Must be 21 years or older to attend. Admission includes drinks and snacks and is $25 per person, and $20 for museum members/Kean University alumni.
