This New Jersey capital city is not a place you should overlook when thinking of places to visit with kids for your family day out. Not at all! Trenton is so rich in history, and culture, you might wonder how you can fit everything in one day!
If kids LOVE history, this is their city! The New Jersey State Museum have Civil Was Flags on display, as well as exhibits on New Jersey history and colonial times, as well as a Planetarium with laser programs! How cool is that!?
The Old Barracks Museum was built during the French Indian War, and is a great place to learn the Colonial and American history - including artifacts and weapons! And want to know who started it all? Then head on down to the William Trent House Museum, the man behind laying out a settlement in 1719 that would come to be Trenton!
Stop! Who goes there! Only the New Jersey State Police Museum where you can see original log cabins once home to the new recruits, and historic weapons and CSI tools. Great for those kids who love to play cops and robbers!
The perfect city for fun, and educational experiences for kids!
