Know More about this tour

This 118,000-square-foot museum, located in the historic heart of Philadelphia, will illuminate America’s founding generation, honoring those who risked everything to secure the liberties that continue to influence the world. When the Museum opens, it will display art, manuscripts, personal diaries, plus British, French, and American weaponry spanning from the 1760s to the rise of armed resistance — and eventually, hard-won independence.

High-tech media, digital interactives, hands-on experiences, and personal interactions with guides will enhance each visitor's experiences.  Immersive environments will include an Oneida council house where visitors will witness the historic debate among the Oneida people in the decision to break with the ancient Iroquois Confederacy and join the American cause; the Battlefield Theater, where visitors are placed on the Continental Army's front lines to face an attack by British Soldiers; and a full-scale replica of a privateer ship that went to sea to challenge the British Navy.

A dynamic theater will house one of the most iconic surviving artifacts of the American Revolution — General George Washington’s headquarters tent.  It was in this tent that the nation's first commander-in-chief directed the war while in the field, holding meetings and making decisions that changed the course of history.

Visitors will leave the museum with a deeper understanding of the people, the ideas, and the events that gave birth to America, and will be prepared to explore historic Philadelphia, the headquarters of the American Revolution.

Additional museum amenities include a gift shop, plus the Cross Keys Cafe, featuring breakfast, lunch, and snack options. The Museum of the American Revolution is conveniently located just two blocks from Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell Center, and Independence Mall.

  • Not enough time because we got there late, missed the movie at the beginning of the tour and then had to rush through. Should have gone earlier or been able to buy a ticket for a certain amount of time since we were traveling and tried to squeeze this in on the first day of our trip. We arrived in Philly later than we thought.

  • Great, great museum. There's so much to see with some interactive exhibits as well. Highly recommended.

  • Loved the interactive activities and the videos.

  • Appreciated that there was no specific time for us to begin our tour. We purchased tickets to use on July 22. Luckily we went early because the museum gets busier later in the day on a Saturday. I enjoyed seeing George Washington's tent and also reading about Americans who fought for the Brits and Brits who fought on the American side. There is so much to see and read and the details sometimes get to be bogged down in too many facts and figures. But the museum is beautiful and the exhibits are generally very interesting. You can go as fast or as slow as you wish. It might be good to go on a weekday when school back in session when less crowded. There is a small self serve restaurant on the first floor but some regular restaurants are near by if you want sit down service.

  • I enjoy ANYTHING concerning the Revolution and was impressed with the historical accuracy vs myths which were developed. The American contradiction of All men are created equal is shown within the time period and developed gradually. Well Done! We began at 2:00pm and left at 5:00pm. It was Sunday of Memorial Weekend and the crowd kept moving on. Since it was my first time through it will not be my last, I was uncertain frequently of where to go next. Signs and arrows would eliminate this problem. Anyone who wishes to deviate could still do so. Dave OConnell
