New and well put together museum focused on the Revolution. They engaged small children with a scavenger hunt which was helpful. The staff was super friendly. more »
This is an excellent, modern museum that covers many facets of the American Revolution. Starting with a broad overview of America at the time it covers the big picture but also tells so many amazing individual stories. The exhibits are filled with hands on examples, audio, video and activities, and the staff are there to bring exhibits to life with their knowledge. I was very impressed and recommend this for any visitor to Philadelphia. we spent 3 hrs here and kids never asked to leave once which I take as a success!!
As UK visitors to Philadelphia we had this museum recommended to us by a local sat on a table next to us in Reading Terminal as the one place not to miss. So we went and boy were we not disappointed. This museum is the best one we have ever been to. We spent 4 and a half hours learning all about the history that we should know about in the UK as it is part of our history too. Would definitely recommend this museum for a visit. Our group ages ranged from 11 to 44 and we all enjoyed it.
