Retail & Rebellion: Thanksgiving Weekend at the Museum

On Black Friday, experience the surprising political and global history of shopping in Revolutionary America and Ireland. Gather under the Liberty Tree to find out what items early Americans bought at the market and what items they boycotted to voice their rights. Barter, trade and participate in a currency exchange challenge in our Galleries. Learn how Revolutionary protests continued across the Atlantic in the Museum’s special exhibition, Cost of Revolution: The Life and Death of an Irish Soldier.’
