Museum of the American Revolution: Philadelphia's Newest Tourist Stop

Philadelphia, the birthplace of America, is now home to the first ever museum dedicated solely to the events and circumstances of the American Revolutionary War. This brings Philadelphia's museum and historic house count to well over 100! Set in Old City, the Museum of the American Revolution opens April 19, on the 242nd anniversary of the shot heard round the world which launched our country on its path to freedom. The setting couldn't be more perfect, sitting right in the heart of America's most historic square mile, with easy access to other remnants of our founding days. This is a true history lovers paradise, and the Museum of the American Revolution fits right in, offering a fresh and in-depth take on a war that literally made it possible for us to be here, as we are, today. We were very excited to get an early peek inside.
