UNION – Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University asks: “Would you, could you in a box? Would you, could you with a fox?” The celebrated museum invites young patrons and their families to see if they like green eggs and ham!
On Sunday, March 4 Liberty Hall hosts a Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Breakfast, celebrating the birthday of the beloved author / illustrator of children’s books. Guests are invited to enjoy a whimsical breakfast while museum staff entertains with classic Dr. Seuss stories.
“There’ll even be a special guest!” said Bill Schroh, director of museum operations. “One who’ll tickle the fancy of Seuss lovers young and old alike!”
The breakfast will be held from 10 a.m. to noon and reservations are required. The program fee is $20.00 per child, $25.00 per adult.
A Wednesday afternoon tea will be held on March 14 from 2 to 4 p.m. The “Luck of the Irish Afternoon Tea” is the perfect place to sip tea, lunch on finger sandwiches and desserts while gazing at the formal English garden from the comfort of Liberty Hall’s glass-enclosed porch. A tour of Liberty Hall will follow afternoon tea. The program fee is $40 per person and reservations are required.
The museum is an entertainment destination for history aficionados, families, seniors and student groups. The ongoing exhibit during 2012 is The Weary and the Wounded: 72 Hours in the Life of a Civil War Nurse. This exhibit commemorates Christine Kean Griffin’s service, and the service of all Civil War nurses. Admission to this exhibit is free; a fee applies for a tour of Liberty Hall.

Chronicling more than 200 years of American history, the museum and its grounds are a treasure trove of significant riches.

The property boasts manicured gardens and fruitful orchards and vegetable fields. The Firehouse is the latest addition to the Museum’s complex housing antique fire engines and a collection of fire memorabilia.
