On April 19, there’ll be another great reason to visit Philadelphia. That’s when the Museum of the American Revolution opens. As Revolutionary War history obsessives, we are deeply excited by this development. The museum aims to use its 118,000 square feet to tell “the dramatic story of our nation’s founding through immersive gallery experiences, object theaters, and recreated historical scenes.” Its collection includes many incredible pieces, such as a banner made in 1824 to honor the Marquis de Lafayette’s return to America. Here are some additional highlights below.
Arguably, the biggest attraction is the original tent George Washington used for his command center during the revolution. (It’s been dubbed “the first Oval Office.”) To find out more about visiting the Museum of the American Revolution, click here. Learn more about its construction in the video below.
