The Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia is scheduled to reopen to the general public on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020, with special access for Museum Members beginning Thursday, August 20. Please check the Museum’s website for the most up-to-date hours and information for visitors.

The Museum’s upcoming special exhibition When Women Lost the Vote: A Revolutionary Story, 1776-1807, originally scheduled to open in August, will now open Friday, Oct. 2. The groundbreaking exhibition will explore the little-known history of the nation’s first women voters in New Jersey following the Revolutionary War—and examine the political conflicts that led to their voting rights being stripped away in 1807. The exhibition will be integrated within the Museum’s permanent galleries and connected by an audio tour. It also will be made available to virtual visitors through a robust online experience. 

Advance reservations are strongly recommended for all visitors, including Members, to limit capacity and comply with social distancing requirements. Tickets are timed and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Members can reserve tickets online here or by phone (267.579.3565), and the general public can purchase tickets online here or by phone (215.253.6731).

In addition to on-site visitation, the Museum will continue to offer an abundance of free digital resources for all ages, including its Virtual Museum Tour, Virtual Field Trip, a rich archive of Read the Revolution book excerpts, comprehensive lesson plans, make-at-home crafts and other activities for families, a digitized collection of the Museum's art and artifacts, and more.
