This is a must do place is you are an American History buff. The Tavern is where Washington bid his troops farewell after the Revolution. The Fraunces was the epicenter of military and political talk in New York during the War, and after when NYC served as our nation's capitol. Many of our nation's most important historical figures frequented the tavern. There are some interesting exhibits, and it's quick to go around and see them all if you are in a hurry. Two of the rooms are preserved in period style, including the Long Room where the farewell took place. Admission is reasonable, and they do a family admission for up to 3 kids for $20 which is good. This is not a stellar place, but like I said, the whole Washington connection makes it a 4. Great for history nuts.

Fraunces Tavern is a historic site.

It comprises a tavern, restaurant and museum.

If you're in the area, it's worth a visit.

I suggest combining a tour of the museum with lunch or dinner in the restaurant.

The building in its current form dates back to 1762. Originally it was a tavern, and it gained its place in American history as a meeting place during the Revolutionary War.

Later in the 18th Century, it housed several US Government departments.

It's an official NYC landmark, and it is included in the US National Register of Historic Places.

The museum is quite compact- hence my suggestion that you combine a visit to the museum with a mealtime. The Financial District is nearby, as is Battery Park. You could visit all of these locatons on the same day.
