Washington's Headquarters Museum Reviews & Ratings
This is a very informative and educational historical site to visit. The museum offers lots of interactive and historical exhibits for visitors. It even has a movie to watch. These exhibits will teach you about George Washington and the American Revolution. One example is there is George Washingtons Inaugural Sword at one of the exhibit rooms. That is a golden gem at the museum. It even has interactive exhibits for kids to learn about history but , in an interactive way. There is a Ford Mansion Tour which starts at the museum. The tour teaches you about George Washington’s stay at the mansion and the winter of 1779 to 1780 which was a very bad winter. Even talks about the history of the home itself. The best part it is all FREE!
Great tour! Very knowledgeable staff! Very well kept grounds!
Really nice spot to learn about local history. Went during the week in March and ended up having a private tour of the Ford mansion which was a lot of fun. Museum is pretty interactive and designed nicely.
The person who provided us with information was such a sweet gal who was very passionate about what she was discussing. Loved every second of the tour.
The brand new "Discover History Center" at the Washington's Headquarters Museum is a must-see for any fan of history, National Parks, or anyone wanting to find out more about local Jersey history and culture. The center features brand new exhibits with fantastic graphic design, interactive digital displays, information based on primary sources, and audio displays that put you in the shoes of historical people. Great update and well worth the trip!
