Fraunces Tavern® Museum offers on-site school programs that are modified for the age and ability of each class. Students will learn about taverns as public meeting places in the 18th century and, in particular, they will understand the role Fraunces Tavern played in the American Revolution. Programs incorporate discussion, inquiry-based learning, and direct handling of objects and support New York State Standards for History of the United States and New York.
