Museum of the American Revolution

museum american revolution

This museum opened in Philadelphia April 2017 and my visit was a year later in 2018.  If you have an interest in the American revolution - and not just the military aspects - this is a good place to visit.



As a new museum, everything looks fresh and new. Their center piece is a short presentation of Washington's Headquarters Tent, dsiplay behind glass with special lighting. When I visited, they had a colonial fife and drum group laying in front, and a special birthday cake to celebrates Washington's Birthday.  The museum gives a good broad view of the American revolution from multiple points of view.  They have obviously given a lot of thought on presentations for kids - anticipating those class trips no doubt. The pictures here are of the more military related aspects of the displays.  Definitely worth stopping by if you are in Philadelphia, PA.
