Learn About American History at Gadsby’s Tavern Museum

The Gadsby’s Tavern Museum is a two-building complex built in 1785 and named after a prominent Englishman who ran the buildings in the late 1700s. The buildings served as a central meeting point for political and social endeavors throughout this time and beyond, with special visitors like George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and other notable Presidents and patrons. 

Now, the building serves as a stunningly preserved museum and recreational center where you can walk in the footsteps of our founding fathers. It offers a handful of fun activities, like period dance classes where you can learn to waltz like the best of them, as well as historic beverage classes where you can taste the indulgent cocktails of centuries past. Check out their website for all the fun offerings and special events. Admission is only $5 to explore, so don’t wait to visit.
