Wow! Let me preface my review by saying we are not typical museum people. We visit museums to catch the highlights but don’t hang onto every word or activity available inside. But this museum captivated us. The use of interactive displays and movies to help...More

This museum was the highlight, during my historically driven trip. If you can do one historical thing in Philadelphia, then make it this museum. You can adequately see it in 3 hours. 4 hours would allow for a full experience. The Washington Tent exhibit is...More

Had a great visit to the MoAR. There are exhibits specifically for young kids that are very interactive - making colonial toys, trying on uniforms, making flags, etc. The permanent galleries are well crafted - tells the story well and from all facets using lots...More

Imagine sitting through history class as a kid and being bored by American History. Hmmm. What do kids know? The Museum of the American Revolution with its artifacts, reproductions and individual cinemas make the struggle for independence real. It is amazing to listen to adults...More

I would recommend at least 3-4 hours. This is a good museum and afterward you can have dinner outside at the British pub across the street. Great outing!!
