Liberty Hall Museum has announced it will host an additional Downton Abbey Luncheon on Saturday, February 8 (Noon - 3 p.m.), after January’s event and a second Downton Abbey Luncheon scheduled for February 22 sold out in record time. “We are excited that Downton Abbey is back on the air, but we never dreamed that so many of our guests would be as well,” said Bill Schroh, Jr., Director of Museum Operations. “Our Downton Abbey trivia game during the January luncheon was one of the toughest I have ever seen. Every guest had their arm raised ready to answer every question. I hope the rest of the Luncheons are just as fun.”

Guests hoping to attend the February 8th event are encouraged to secure their reservations as soon as possible by calling 908-527-0400 or emailing libertyhall@kean.edu. Limited seating is also available for Liberty Hall’s Downton Abbey Luncheon scheduled for Saturday, March 22 (Noon – 3 p.m.).

It’s been a remarkably auspicious start to the year for the former residence of New Jersey’s first elected governor, William Livingston, which recorded its best public attendance to date last season. “2013 was a great year for Liberty Hall Museum,” stated Mr. Schroh. “We recorded our highest amount of visitors ever, over 20,000 people, and 2014 looks just as promising. Even though we are closed for public tours for the winter months, we still have plenty of events happening.”

One such event is Liberty Hall’s upcoming Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Breakfast on Saturday, March 1 (10 a.m. – Noon). Children and their families will enjoy a scrumptious all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, make their very own Dr. Seuss hat, and take their picture with silly props and the one and only Cat in the Hat himself. Admission is $23 for children, and $28 for adults; reservations are required by February 22, and can be made by calling 908-527-0400 or emailing libertyhall@kean.edu.

Liberty Hall Museum at Kean University chronicles more than 240 years of American history. The museum also houses extensive collections of furniture, ceramics, textiles, toys and tools owned by seven generations of the Livingston and Kean families. The Firehouse Museum, built in 2004, houses three antique fire engines, including a rare 1911 American LaFrance Metropolitan Steam Engine. The museum is currently open for group tours (10 or more guests), private events, and scheduled seasonal activities such as those outlined above. Public tours resume Tuesday, April 1.
