Museum of the American Revolution
The Museum of the American Revolution will take visitors on a journey through the incredible, unlikely story of our nation’s founding. Through exhibition galleries, theaters and a distinguished collection of original artifacts, the remarkable history of the American Revolution will come to life within this 118,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility.
The Museum will also serve as a one-of-a-kind backdrop for special events and weddings in Philadelphia beginning in 2017, offering the following spaces:
The Museum lobby is the hub for visitor service and orientation. The Lobby’s gracious architecture provides an attractive venue for those attending special events and programs both during and after hours. The ceiling features a graceful vault, creating the distinctive feel of historic masonry construction that is heightened by the use of stone cladding on the walls and floor.
ROTUNDA & GRAND STAIRCASE
The Rotunda and ground floor court serves as the crossroads of the Museum. Visitors pass through the Court to enter the Main Theater, the Special Exhibition Space, the Museum Shop, and the Café. The Grand Staircase is the most distinctive architectural feature of the ground floor and provides a dramatic pathway to the Museum’s exhibition galleries.
The Main Theater will house the Museum’s signature film – a thought-provoking, stirring and inspiring overview of the American Revolution and its continued relevance. It is ideally suited for after-hour use. The Theater has an expansive, sloped-floor that accommodates 190 people. It is outfitted with three synchronized digital projectors, a surround-sound audio system, and theatrical lighting. This technology can be adapted for illustrated presentations, lectures and meetings.
SPECIAL EXHIBIT GALLERY
The Special Exhibition Gallery will showcase short-term exhibitions. When not in use for this purpose, the space will be available for facility rentals. The 5,000 square foot space has the flexibility to be subdivided to host concurrent event programming.
A state-of-the-art boardroom available for business meetings. You can also transform it into a lounge setting.
Located on the third floor, the Liberty Hall is a beautifully proportioned, handsomely finished, naturally lit, versatile space that can accommodate a formal dinner for 180, a scholarly panel discussion, a board meeting, a festive reception and more. The Hall offers striking views in multiple directions, including the façade of the First Bank of the United States, Independence National Historical Park, and historic buildings on Chestnut Street. An open-air terrace provides a dramatic overlook of the Museum’s plaza.
