Two white male adolescents, both standing at a wooden table, interact with a play tea set. The adolescent on the left is pretending to pour tea into a silver teacup from a silver teapot. The adolescent on the right has his hand on the teacup saucer. Both are dressed in Revolutionary-era outfits.

Did Revolutionary War soldiers always just wear red coats and blue coats? And what about the women and children who traveled with the soldiers? Uniforms and clothing could be a whole range of colors and styles depending on who you were, where you came from, and even what your role was in the military. Join museum staff as we go through the wardrobe of uniforms, hats, dresses, and accessories to discover what you might have worn during the Revolutionary War.

History Explorers Club playdates are best enjoyed by ages 7-11 but fun for all kids.

Museum Family and Ambassador Level Members enjoy History Explorers Club programs for Free!
