Philadelphia Museum of Art and Museum of the American Revolution Offer “Art & Revolution” Special Discounted Joint Ticket this Summer

Joint Ticket Offers Savings of up to $25

From one of the oldest, most iconic museums in Philadelphia to the newest, a new “Art & Revolution” 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 for a discounted price from July 2 – September 2, 2019

“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 new 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.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to team up with such a venerable cultural institution to provide another avenue to accessing Philadelphia’s vibrant arts, culture, and history offerings,” said Dr. R. Scott Stephenson, President and CEO of the Museum of the American Revolution. “From art on the Parkway to artifacts in Old City, this ticket will help visitors and local residents experience all Philadelphia has to offer this summer.”

The adult joint ticket is $30 (savings of $11) and a Family Four Pack (2 adults and 2 children under 12 tickets) is $70 (savings of $25). The tickets are now available for purchase at www.philamuseum.org, and onsite at both Museums.

This summer at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, discover two unique and exciting experiences that will inspire and entertain the whole family. Souls Grown Deep: Artists of the African American South, an extraordinary collection of textile art, sculpture, and painting from Gee’s Bend, Alabama, made from worn-out clothes and other repurposed fabrics is on view through September 2 in the Perelman Building. Our summer family program, Art Splash, opens its doors on July 5 to all creative kids and their grown-ups with daily art making activities, so you can share your story by transforming treasures and tinkering with textures.

At the Museum of the American Revolution this summer, visitors can view 40 rare 13-star flags as part of the special exhibit A New Constellation: A Collection of Historic 13-Star Flags from Flag Day, June 14 – July 21. From June 29 – July 7, the Museum will host an Independence Day Celebration with a giant flag installation that visitors can contribute to, costumed historical interpreters, birthday cake for America, and more. Extended summertime hours, family-friendly programs, and special crafts and activities will take place all summer long.
