Free Citizenship Classes

The Museum of the American Revolution’s Citizenship Initiative supports Philadelphia’s growing immigrant population pursuing American citizenship by helping these individuals prepare for the United States naturalization test. We welcome all immigrants and refugees to participate in our free citizenship classes.

Our course covers the naturalization exam’s three key components: American Government, American History and Integrated Civics. Throughout the course, students interact with the historical objects, paintings and stories highlighted in the Museum galleries.

Due to a scheduling conflict, we are rescheduling this course to later in the fall. Please stay tuned as we will be posting new course dates shortly. For registration for the Fall 2023 course, please click To Register and complete the form.

The course concludes with a dedicated information session led by a partner organization, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. This special presentation offers students helpful resources on the application process, eligibility screening and the personal interview.

All graduates of the Citizenship Initiative will receive a one-year individual membership to the Museum.
