How will you #BeTheRevolution? This Independence Day, the Museum of the American Revolution is asking visitors and passersby to declare how they are carrying forward the American Revolution by adding a personalized ribbon to a flag-shaped “Declarations Wall” on the Museum’s outdoor plaza from Saturday, June 29 – Sunday, July 7. Representatives from Philadelphia’s The Fabric Workshop also will be onsite to teach visitors historic techniques of flag making July 2-4.

Inside the Museum, visitors can explore the history and continuing legacy of the Declaration of Independence with special programs and activities for all ages. Create Independence Day-inspired crafts to take home at “History in the Making” craft tables. Visitors can sign their name to a giant Declaration of Independence in the Museum’s rotunda and take home a complimentary pocket-sized Declaration.

In the Museum’s discovery center, Revolution Place, the whole family can explore 18th-century Philadelphia through immersive environments, interactive touchscreens, reproduction objects, and special programs from 12 pm - 4 pm.
