PHILADELPHIA, NOV. 21, 2016 — Looking for a unique present for a friend or family member this holiday season? Give the gift of unlimited admission to the new Museum of the American Revolution, which opens to the public on April 19, 2017, in the heart of historic Philadelphia.
The person or family who receives a gift membership will get free, unlimited admission to the Museum through April 2018, and will be invited to the special Members-only Preview Weekend on April 15 and 16, before the public opening. Other benefits include invitations to special events, discounted tickets for most public and family programs, 10 percent off purchases at the Museum Store and Café, and discounted parking in Old City.
Annual memberships begin at $65. For more information about membership levels and to purchase a membership, visit www.amrevmuseum.org/membership, email Membership@amrevmuseum.org, or call the Membership Office at 215.253.6731, ext. 2030. Gift memberships are tax deductible.
When the Museum opens, visitors will experience the dramatic story of our nation’s founding through the perspectives of people who made it happen. In addition to a rich collection of authentic historic artifacts, including Revolutionary-era weapons, personal belongings, works of art, letters and diaries, the Museum will use immersive galleries, dynamic theaters, and recreated historic environments to bring these stories to life.
Located just steps away from Independence Hall, Carpenters’ Hall, and Franklin Court, the Museum will serve as a portal to the region’s many Revolutionary sites, sparking interest, providing context, and encouraging exploration.
Individual tickets will be available in February 2017. Group tickets are now available and can be purchased by calling 267.858.3308. For more information, visit www.amrevmuseum.org or call 877.740.1776.
