The Museum Celebrates its Third Birthday on April 19

The Museum of the American Revolution is celebrating its third birthday on April 19! Although the Museum is temporarily closed to the public, we’re looking back on some of our most memorable moments since opening in 2017.

To date, we have welcomed more than 900,000 visitors from across the nation and around the world, including nearly 175,000 schoolchildren, who have experienced what CBS Sunday Morning called the Museum’s “nuanced, warts-and-all version of the American Revolution.” The Museum has made history come alive for visitors through a whirlwind of special exhibits, engaging programming, and new acquisitions and discoveries.

Some of the Museum’s most memorable moments since opening include:
