CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE:

At Liberty Hall Museum, our top priority is the safety and well-being of our many visitors, patrons, staff, and volunteers. Following guidance from public health and governmental authorities, and in accordance with recommendations issued by the CDC, we have made the decision to continue with the temporary closure of the museum in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

In these times of heightened anxiety and vigilance, we are holding on to the important role museums play in our lives: they nourish our hearts and minds, teach us valuable lessons and critical skills, and help us create community. We have continued with our strong online presence with posts and educational resources. We are resolved not to lose sight of what connects us and we hope you will continue to follow us on social media and continue to be part of our community from wherever you are.

In the meantime, should you have additional questions or wish to speak with a Liberty Hall representative, please contact us at libertyhall@kean.edu

Simple steps that you can take to prevent the spread of the common cold and flu which can also help prevent COVID-19:
-Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
-Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
-Avoid contact with people who are sick.
-Stay home while you are sick and avoid contact with others.
-Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing.
-Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces.

Thank you for your understanding. We are working hard to keep Liberty Hall a safe environment for all guests! We look forward to reopening as soon as possible!
