A Museum Member talks to two costumed living historians dressed as British redcoats at the member teatime at Occupied Philadelphia.

On Sunday afternoon, Oct. 29, between 1-2 p.m., Museum Members are invited to stop by the Museum’s third-floor Liberty Hall for a spot of tea during Occupied Philadelphia, the Museum's flagship living history event. While enjoying light refreshments, “loyal” Members and History Explorers alike will have the opportunity to spy on the bustling British-occupied marketplace on the Museum plaza from the terrace above. Hear British General Howe’s side of this story, enjoy a complimentary warm beverage, and participate in family-friendly activities with costumed living history interpreters before venturing back into Occupied Philadelphia.

Museum Members are encouraged to RSVP to Emily Grenier, Membership Manager, at [email protected].
