Beat the Heat at the Museum of the American Revolution this August

John Adams wrote that he dreaded “the melting Heats of a Philadelphia Summer,” but even though it’s hot outside, cool things are happening at the Museum of the American Revolution this August. In addition to enjoying the Museum’s ice-cold air conditioning (a perk of strict climate requirements for preserving artifacts), visitors can enjoy everything from 18th-century music on the outdoor plaza to an archaeology station and history-themed happy hours.
