Grand Opening in Philadelphia

April 27, 2017
On the 242nd anniversary of the opening battles of the American Revolution at Lexington and Concord, the Museum of the American Revolution opened its doors in Philadelphia.
The Museum of the American Revolution is the first museum devoted to the United States’ early years.  The Museum is located in the historic district of Philadelphia where your educational tour can also visit where the Declaration of Independence was signed and the United States Constitution was ratified.
The 118,000 square foot museum displays approximately 500 objects – from muskets and military uniforms to a pair of baby shoes made from a British redcoat.  Galleries recreate notable scenes in history complete with life-cast figures as well as a huge and a full re-creation of an American privateer ship that your Philadelphia field trip can board!  A highlight of the collection is George Washington’s carefully restored field tent.
The final display features a wall of photographs of people who were alive during the Revolutionary War entitled, “Meet the Future of the American Revolution.”  The hope is that visitors, like your Philadelphia student tour group will feel a part of the American Revolution today, and have a responsibility to continue the story into the future.
