Event Description

Our highly anticipated toy exhibit Toys through Time: The History of American Fun will encompass five rooms in the museum and will have interactive and hands-on features. The collection ranges from about 1850 to 1950 and will include board games, dolls, trucks, rocking horses, puppets, doll houses and so much more!

Liberty Hall is the first museum in New Jersey to use augmented reality to enhance your experience in this exhibit! There are six posters within the exhibit that you can scan (similar to QR codes) using your smartphone or a Liberty Hall iPad that provides historical context or a 3D image in regards to the toy on display.  All you need to do is go to the app store on your phone and download the free app: LAYAR.  No smart phone? Don't worry! We have iPads for you to borrow so you can still experience this cool feature!
