Know More about this tour

This 118,000-square-foot museum, located in the historic heart of Philadelphia, will illuminate Americas 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 Washingtons 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.
