More than a Century in the Making

Our collection of more than 4,000 artifacts and documents is at the heart of the Museum's experience. The collection, a legacy of the Valley Forge Historical Society, began more than a century ago in 1907. In honor of our fifth anniversary, which we celebrated back in April, we are pleased to share these selections from our collecting and stewardship since we opened in 2017.

"... an essential American story."

In the upcoming 2023 special exhibition Black Founders: The Forten Family of Philadelphia, the Museum will introduce visitors to James Forten and his descendants as they navigated the American Revolution and cross-racial relationships in Philadelphia to become leaders in the abolition movement in the lead-up to the Civil War and the women's suffrage movement. Using objects, documents, and immersive environments, Black Founders: The Forten Family of Philadelphia will explore the Forten family’s roles in the Revolutionary War, business in Philadelphia, and abolition and voting rights from 1776 to 1876.
