See Magna Carta - and More
Fraunces Tavern® Museum—dedicated to America's own struggle for freedom—is the perfect venue for you to see this amazing document. Fraunces Tavern is the ONLY museum in Manhattan dedicated to American Revolutionary War history-and the place where much of it actually happened.
Magna Carta is one of the most important documents in the history of democracy, directly influencing human rights throughout the centuries, which followed.
"MAGNA CARTA and the Foundations of Freedom" will also reveal how the roots of the U.S. Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and more all reach back to Magna Carta. It will also trace the freedom struggles of the diverse peoples making up the American social fabric.
Your admission to MAGNA CARTA will also gain you entrance to our Dunsmore Gallery with its magnificent paintings depicting Revolutionary War scenes, the historic Long Room where George Washington bade farewell to his officers, and the elegant Clinton Dining Room.
Your visit will be an experience rich with stories of American patriotism and the history of liberty itself.
