History Explorer Meet-Up: Occupied PhiladelphiaNovember 5, 2022 at 11:30 a.m. (SOLD OUT) & 1:30 p.m.
In this family-friendly, activity-filled walking tour, we’ll explore occupied Philadelphia, meet British soldiers and everyday residents, and get a hands-on glimpse into life under British authority. Why did the British want to take over Philadelphia? How did Philadelphians feel about it? And where did General Washington go? Join Family Programs Manager Rebecca Franco as we work together to answer these questions and hunt through soldiers and civilians to gather the latest information to pass on to the spymaster — if we can find them!
Occupied Philadelphia is the Museum’s annual flagship living history event, which recreates the dark days of the British occupation. Join us from Nov. 5-6, 2022, on the Museum plaza and at select sites in Old City throughout the weekend.
