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 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!
