PHILADELPHIA, NOV. 1, 2017 — Two premier institutions inspired by world-changing documents, now accessible by one convenient ticket!

Located just blocks apart in Philadelphia’s most historic neighborhood – home to Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and more – the two museums tell the story of the American founding, as the early stirrings of rebellion and the Declaration of Independence led to the creation of the United States Constitution, which established a system of government for the new nation.

“As the newest kid on the block, we’re thrilled to team up with a venerable institution like the National Constitution Center to give visitors a full Revolutionary Philadelphia experience,” said Michael Quinn, President and CEO of the Museum of the American Revolution. “These great museums provide visitors with a richer, deeper understanding of the people and places that brought our nation into being as well as the ongoing relevance of this continuing experiment in self-government.”

“The National Constitution Center is excited to collaborate with the Museum of the American Revolution to advance our mission of educating all Americans about the U.S. Constitution,” said Jeffrey Rosen, President and CEO of the National Constitution Center. “The ideals that sparked the American Revolution were codified in the Constitution and Bill of Rights and I’m thrilled that visitors to Philadelphia will have an unmatched opportunity to learn about the story of the American founding in our two great centers of learning.”

The joint tickets are now available at, or in person at both museums. The adult joint ticket is $29 (savings of $4.50), youth joint ticket is $19 (savings of $4), and a family pack (2 adults and 2 kids) is $90 (savings of $22).

To help visitors plan their Revolutionary itinerary, the Museum of the American Revolution also recently launched a website,, that highlights the numerous historic sites and heritage attractions throughout the Greater Philadelphia region, including battlefields, burial grounds, historic houses, and more. Also included is a list of upcoming special events, activities, or exhibits related to the American Revolution at regional sites.
