Just two months ago, the Museum of the American Revolution opened its doors to the public with a memorable opening ceremony featuring former Vice President, Joe Biden, and a member of the original cast of the Broadway musical “Hamilton”, James Harcourt. In fact, the opening ceremony itself occurred on the 242nd anniversary of the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” that ignited the Revolutionary War in 1775.
However, aside from this ceremonial grand opening, the museum itself provides visitors with a one-of-a-kind interactive experience. Throughout the museum’s four exhibits, visitors can watch actors re-enact significant events from the revolution, sit under a life-size replica of the Boston Liberty Tree, and explore George Washington’s restored field tent.
During the revolution, Congress and the state governments licensed privateers for Americans to attack British ships and disrupt trade. For kids, riding aboard the museum’s life-size replica of a privateer ship is both an educational and stimulating experience.
This June, The Barach Group had the opportunity to visit the museum amidst its growing popularity throughout the Philadelphia community.
Located only a few blocks from Independence Hall, the Museum of the American Revolution is perfectly seated in the historic district of Philadelphia. While you visit, be sure to explore this unique part of the city and stop by the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House, and the National Constitution Center.
