The American Revolution was dramatic, gritty, and full of uncertainty- an era of unparalleled political and social upheaval, even by today’s standards. The Museum invites you and your group to explore this rich and complicated era and its connections to our world today. Through its unmatched collection of Revolutionary-era weapons, personal items, documents, and works of art, the Museum considers the complexities of our nation’s history and uplifts stories that have gone untold.

Highlights include:

  • Washington’s War Tent film: Follow general Washington’s remarkable journey and sit in the presence of his original Revolutionary War headquarters tent.
  • Independence Gallery: Read the list of grievances leveled the against the King from authentic printings of the Declaration of Independence.
  • Oneida Nation Gallery: Stand among life-size replicas of members of the Oneida Indian Nation and listen to the intense debate that led to their decision to break with the Iroquois Confederacy and join the American cause.
  • The War at Sea Gallery: Climb aboard a replica privateer ship to experience the war at sea. A favorite of kids of all ages!

  • Philadelphia: A Revolutionary City
  • Eighteenth-century Philadelphia was a complex place where global trade brought new goods and new ideas to the people who became revolutionaries. Follow one artifact – a punchbowl uncovered in an archaeological dig on site of the Museum of the American Revolution – on a virtual tour of the city, and find yourself in market stalls, coffeehouses, illegal taverns, churches, and the halls of government.

  • Revolutionary Women: Writing About War
  • The Revolutionary War offered new opportunities for women from all backgrounds. Thousands of women chose sides and contributed to the American Revolution. What do their individual experiences, documented in travel diaries, memoirs, court records, and commonplace objects tell us about their experiences, the War, and its legacy?

  • Making the Museum
  • The Museum of the American Revolution opened in 2017, but it has a history that reaches back over a century. Where did our collection come from? How did an Episcopal minister in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, acquire Washington’s war tent, and what did that acquisition have to do with the American Civil War? How did our Museum end up in downtown Philadelphia? What new discoveries have we made from recent acquisitions? This presentation highlights key artifacts and reveals how things work behind-the-scenes at the Museum.

Group Rate: $8 per person, minimum 15 people

Choose from one of these exciting topics:


  • Made in Philadelphia
  • The Revolutionary War has begun and the Continental Army needs supplies! But who will make the firearms, flags, and weapons required to fight the British? Discover the challenges and successes of Philadelphia artisans like Thomas Palmer, Jacob Eckfelt, and Rebecca Flower Young, who made the war materiel that led to victory. Guests will have the opportunity to handle replicas of the tools and products used by these craftspeople.

  • Then and Now: Military Families During the Revolution and Today
  • Military families have always played an important role in supporting those fighting on the front lines. During the Revolutionary War, they raised children, worked with the armies on campaign, held down the home-front, made supplies, and raised funds. Explore the stories of the women and children who supported the military on and off the battlefield and learn how their experiences compare to military families today. Learn more about camp followers through an exploration of hand-made replicas of the things they carried on campaign.

  • Archaeology at the Museum of the American Revolution
  • In 2014, ahead of the Museum of the American Revolution’s construction, a team of archaeologists discovered remarkable artifacts from the people who once lived on this block. Investigate the neighborhood’s trash piles, buried for over 200 years, to understand what they add to ongoing research about the people who called this neighborhood home during the Revolution. While an educator discusses this work, test your archaeological skills by attempting to reassemble replicas of the thousands of broken pottery pieces uncovered at the site.
