From one of the oldest, most iconic museums in Philadelphia to one of the newest, a new “Art & America” discounted joint ticket will provide access to two world-class institutions this summer. The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of the American Revolution have teamed up to offer visitors a convenient joint ticket that includes access to both museums for a discounted price from Friday, May 28 – September 6, 2021.
“Our collections range from the exceptional achievements of the Peale family of painters to Presidential china once owned by George Washington, and fine furniture and interiors, including the parlor where George and Martha danced the minuet,” said Kathleen A. Foster, the Robert L. McNeil Jr. Senior Curator of American Art. “When you experience all this, along with the Museum of the American Revolution, you can just feel the spirit of the revolution come alive before your eyes. Philadelphia is ground zero for the nation’s early history, so from the heart of the revolution to the art of the revolution, this is a joint ticket that offers an incredible journey.”
The adult joint ticket is $35 (savings of $11). The tickets will be available for purchase from May 28 - Sept. 6 at www.philamuseum.org, by calling (215) 763-8100, or at the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s front desk. They will be redeemable through September 20 at both museums.
This summer at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, visitors can explore our city’s extraordinary creativity in the brand new Early American Art galleries featuring an unparalleled collection of paintings, sculpture, ceramics, furniture, glass, silver and more from the early 17th century until 1850. More than 10,000-square-feet of new gallery space has been installed to tell new and inclusive stories of how Philadelphia became the young nation’s cultural capital, and how Black, Indigenous, and Latin American artists contributed to the development of American art.
As part of the Museum of the American Revolution’s “Revolutionary Summer,” visitors can view more than 40 rare American flags alongside historic early state constitutions and the first printing of the proposed U.S. Constitution of 1787 as part of the special exhibition Flags and Founding Documents, 1776-Today, running from June 12 – September 6, 2021. Also beginning Flag Day weekend, the Museum’s True Colours Flag Project will feature recreations of flags carried by ships during the Revolutionary War. Extended summertime hours and family-friendly events and activities will take place all summer long, offering visitors of all ages the opportunity to explore the American Revolution's ongoing relevance.
