Another outing on our brief COVID disrupted vacation. We visited the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton today. Fascinating location with so much history. There were actually a total of 6 of these style barracks created (Burlington, Princeton, New Brunswick, Perth Amboy and Elizabeth). Only the Trenton barracks survive as of today. It was nice to visit today with our first tour guide Asher who was very knowledgeable and professional. Followed by James dressed in British uniform talked about the lives of the soldiers and their uniform along with a long rifle firing presentation. As a bonus we got see Damian the Shoe Maker who was putting the finishing touches a pair for James including attaching actual era silver shoe buckles. Explore. Even at times like these.

I rarely write reviews but after visiting the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton, I truly felt compelled. A set of barracks built in the 1750's, it was an incredible place to visit and the staff went out of their way to explain the lore and history of the place. Dressed in period costumes, they explained what events had taken place there and the intricacies of the era's firearms, building practices, and medication. Truly stunning. I felt lucky to have experienced it and am extremely grateful I checked this museum out while in Trenton. I urge you to do the same.

We did a day trip to the Old Barracks. We learned more about the battles that took place during the American Revolution. The characters around the barracks gave you a sense of life during that time. The guided tour was very good and the guide was knowledgeable about the times. We were able move abut on our own after the tour. The barracks is a short distance from the main area.

Excellent 23-minute video followed by guided tour of the barracks. John, our guide, was dressed in period costume. He provided a detailed and lively narrative regarding the historical significance of the Old Barracks. Free parking on premises made this a great Saturday afternoon stop!
