On November 25, 1783 British troops evacuated New York City, the last City to be occupied at the end of the Revolutionary War. General George Washington led his troops in a parade that proceeded down Broadway, and ended with a dinner held at Fraunces Tavern.

Celebrate this momentous event in New York City's history with $1 admission to the Museum; which includes live performances by the uniformed Fife & Drums of the Old Barracks. Outfitted in authentic 2nd New Jersey Regiment uniforms, the Fife & Drum Corps will perform 4 different sets throughout the day. Join us and experience the music well known by every solider in the Revolution! Performances will take place at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30.

Guided Museum tours are FREE with $1 Museum admission at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00pm.
