April Fools Fun @ The TR Site

The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site is inviting the community to attend a “sleuth hunt” at the TR site on April Fool’s Day. Throughout the year, the TR site is dedicated to displaying accurate historic records, and objects, as they pertain to the life of Theodore Roosevelt. But on April First the tables will be turned upside down, as certain articles within the building will be added or altered, so that fact-checking sleuths can identify what’s right, and what’s wrong from room to room. Some of the alterations will be obvious, while others will be true head scratchers.

Maybe a lamp is not from the TR era? There might be a photo of someone who should not be there? Something might look odd, or out of place. It’s time to put on your sleuth hat, and point out all of the discrepancies that you can spot.

Let’s just hope that after the event, everything is made right in the museum, because on April 2, the museum will be put back to its original state.

Adults and kids alike are invited to explore the rooms from noon until 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, March 28th and March 29th.  There will be prizes and drawings, as well as other activities for the kids to enjoy!  Admission is free for TR Site members and children under 12 accompanied by an adult.  Otherwise, regular admission rates apply ($10 for adults; $7 for seniors & students with ID; $5 for children 12+).

The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site is located at 641 Delaware Avenue, with free parking available.  Please visit or call (716) 884-0095 for more information.
