The Old Barracks Museum welcomes visitors to see this historic building, dating back to 1758 when it was used winter quarters during the French and Indian War, through the American Revolution when it stood witness to the Battle of Trenton and served as a military hospital to provide smallpox inoculations. Visitors will meet with 18th century tradespeople who showcase the skills required for army life, tour the gallery on the history of New Jersey in the French and Indian War, see the bunks where soldiers slept, tour the Officers' House, see a medical room, and experience the thrill of a musket firing.
