Welcome to Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University, home of New Jersey’s first elected governor and signer of the Constitution, William Livingston. Built in 1772, on the eve of the American Revolution, Liberty Hall has been a silent witness to more than 200 years of American history.
Over the last two centuries, the originally designed 14-room Georgian Style home has grown into a 50-room Victorian-style mansion. The site houses extensive collections of antique furniture, ceramics, textiles, toys and tools owned by seven generations of Livingston and Kean families.
Ancestors of the Livingston/Kean families have included Governors, U.S. Congressmen and Senators, business entrepreneurs, and pioneering women with vision and strength. The stories of their lives, passed down from generation to generation, tell how this family met the challenges of a changing nation.
Visit Liberty Hall Museum and discover the living past.
Toys Through Time: The History of American Fun
Ongoing Exhibit open through December 2016!
Our highly anticipated toy exhibit Toys through Time: The History of American Fun will encompass five rooms in the museum and will have interactive and hands-on features. The collection ranges from about 1850 to 1950 and will include board games, dolls, trucks, rocking horses, puppets, doll houses and so much more! Liberty Hall Museum wants young visitors to see the variety of toys children from long ago played with (no technology!) and for parents and grandparents to reminisce about their own childhood and some of their favorite toys or games they played with. The family that plays together, stays together!
