Arm & Hammer Park

This charming stadium is the home of the AA baseball team Trenton Thunder.

Reviewed By bluejeanfood - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

On a beautiful Sunday, September 3rd the Trenton Thunder AA affiliate of the New York Yankees hosted the Reading Fightin Phils AA affilate of the Philadelphia Phillies for a doubleheader. My beloved Phils won both games, and while there I enjoyed the Swine Sandwich from the Case’s Pork Roll station. The sandwich was of course Case’s pork roll topped with pulled pork, bacon, and American cheese on a Kaiser roll. It was delicious and the stadium is a great place to watch baseball. Highly recommend a visit and this sandwich. Congrats to the Trenton Thunder on an amazing season

I came here with my kids (2 & 4.) They had a fun time but I probably would not go back again. We went on Father Day weekend and it was mobbed (not to mention they were running a groupon so the line to get in was hectic. Just to give you an idea of the type of place it is-- someone stole my husbands flipflops when he was in the kiddie pool and a teen looking Dad yelled at me because he thought I was skipping the entrance line (I wasn't).

However the kids enjoyed it. We did Lunch with Elmo (they get to take pictures with the characters, my 4 year old was entranced by them but the 2 year old was scared and screaming (there were a lot of screaming kids) Food is typical cafeteria food(which it to be expected) At this age though, unless your kids LOVE Elmo, this amusement park is not too different than any other park. It is good for a one time visit, just to get pictures with Elmo but I would not come back again. Also, if you come come on a cool day. It gets very hot/ the sun is beating down on you so my kids were done after less than 2 hours.

Bouncing off the walls

Reviewed By melbiemel - St. Augustine, Florida

I took my 1 and half yr old here during open play and she had a blast! It was perfect, not too crowded and just the perfect size of the facility for her. They had a lot of toys to play with, 2 bouncers, 1 climbing thing with a slide. There was a basketball and icehockey games for the older kids. They also have a section with tables so you can bring in your own food and drinks.
My daughter had a great time - well worth 6 bucks!

Roebling Museum

Reviewed By podrozniczka60 - New Jersey

Like Batsto,NJ and even more so Smithville Park,NJ - Roebling can be added to a "must see" list for New Jersey history lovers.
1.2-square-mile town was created in the very beginning of 20th century completely from scratch by the company of a well known industrialist and architect John A. Roebling who emigrated to the United States in 1831 from Prussia. He and later also his sons constructed numerous bridges including Brooklyn Bridge, Niagara Falls, Washington Bridge and Golden Gate. Those were wire rope suspension bridges with Roebling-made wire cables. The museum exhibits explain the technology and design.
The plant no longer exists but the town still does.
Roebling Museum features informational movie and interesting exhibits showing the life of Roebling Family, the history of the plant, the engineering achievements of Roeblings. The tickets are $6 for adults. After visiting the museum one should go on a walking tour of Roebling. There are maps by the entrance door of the museum. I understand that sometimes the guided walking tours are offered but not on the August Saturday when our visit took place.
If you cannot walk through this interesting town it is even easier to drive following the map.

Took a group of college basketball players here to pass the time on a Monday night. Even after spending 2 days visiting NYC, many of them said this was their favorite part of the trip. The lights were awesome and the market at the end of the show was just as enjoyable. The team loved getting ice cream, hot chocolate, etc and sitting around the fire and singing Christmas songs

Not sure how I never heard of this place but I've been twice now and looking forward to going back. Amazing grounds and gardens and interesting sculpture everywhere you turn. Both times we started by going to Ratt's Restaurant and then actually driving around to the visitors center. I've been in summer and spring and now looking forward to a fall visit. This would be difficult for someone with limited mobility or anyone in a wheelchair due to spots with uneven terrain so call ahead to reserve a guide / golf cart tour. For everyone else -- as large as the grounds are - you're walking at your speed with plenty of places to take breaks - including a few snack locations throughout the park. We've never had alot of luck following the maps but you really don't need them - and all the sculptures are well labeled.

Old Barracks Museum

In 1758, the Old Barracks was constructed to house British troops during the French and Indian War. During the Revolutionary War, the barracks was one of Washington's military hospitals. Today, the building is home to an interpretive museum, galleries, gift shop, and meeting space. Guided tours start on the hour from 10 AM - 4 PM.

Every summer we try to see and explore something historic and the last several years we have focused more on World War II since we are in Europe so it was nice to learn something more about US history. Tours are done I believe every hour so if you get there in between times you can stroll around a little outside or watch a video that is about 20 or so minutes and look at a few items they have in the same room as the video. The tour was ok. The gentleman seemed knowledgable about what he was explaining to our group but he didn't seem to be in a good mood. This made it a little awkward but everyone is entitled to a "down day". It was interesting to learn of the history and other factors to the barracks and how it impacted the outcome of War for Independence. After the tour there is another area that you can visit another area with more items to see. It is worth visiting if in or near the Trenton area. Location is easy to find. We were not sure about parking near the museum since it said something about have your id ready so we decided to park in the city parking garage that is not too far away. Just a few minutes to walk. There ae a few other things to see in the area as well if you have time. This museum is not stroller or wheel chair friendly from what I saw. Thank you for being a Blue Star Museum! Our group had a mix of teens and elementary age kids and everyone took something away from what we learned about at this museum.
