New Jersey State House (Capitol)
Most visits to the New Jersey State House begin in the historic Rotunda space where guests learn about our Capitol's evolution from a simple rubble-stone structure built in 1792 to the grand architectural monument of today. Impressive stained glass windows surround portraits of our early Governors.
New Jersey State Museum
The New Jersey State Museum serves the life-long educational needs of residents and visitors through its collections, exhibitions, programs, publications and scholarship in science, history and the arts. Within a broad context, the Museum explores the natural and cultural diversity of New Jersey, past and present.
Pennsbury Manor is a reconstruction of William Pennís home along the Delaware River. The reconstruction, based upon archeological finds, written documents, and research of the period, was opened to the public in 1939. Today, Pennsbury sits on 43 acres of peaceful green space in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The Manor itself is furnished with an outstanding collection of late 17th-century furniture and objects, while the outbuildings contain reproductions that allow visitors to experience history through demonstrations and hands-on activities.
The Old Barracks Museum
Today, the Old Barracks serves as an educational center for Colonial and American history, and stands as the last remaining structure of its kind. The Old Barracks staff provides daily tours and interpretations of American colonial life. The building offers a museum of artifacts and weapons, as well as a gift shop.
William Trent House Museum
William Trent built his country estate north of Philadelphia, in New Jersey, at the Falls of the Delaware River about 1719. It was a large, imposing brick structure, built in the newest fashion. An "allee" of English cherry trees led from the entrance down to the ferry landing.
