Come spend the day at this amazing museum. Consider the brand new exhibit Religion in Early America. “The role of religion in the formation and development
of the United States is at the heart of this one-year exhibition that explores the themes of religious diversity, freedom, and growth from the colonial era through
the 1840s. National treasures from the Museum’s own collection are on view. . . (including) a Torah scroll on loan from New York’s Congregation Shearith Israel. The
objects represent the diverse range of Christian, Native American, and African traditions as well as Mormonism, Islam, and Judaism that wove through American life in this era.” — Website
There are many other exhibits (First Ladies’ Gowns, the original “Star Spangled Banner,” etc.) to view and a café in which you can sit, relax, and eat if desired.
