Museum of the American Revolution

Join us in touring Philadelphia’s newest museum!

The Museum of the American Revolution explores the dynamic story of the American Revolution. Immersive galleries, theaters, and recreated historical environments bring to life the events of our nation’s founding.

After our visit to the museum, we will dine at The City Tavern.

Called the “most genteel tavern in America” by John Adams, the original tavern was a favorite meeting place of many of the Founding Fathers and of members of the First Continental Congress. The new nation’s first Fourth of July celebration was held at City Tavern in 1777 to mark the anniversary of America’s Independence from Britain. General George Washington first met the Marquis de Lafayette at The City Tavern. Damaged by fire, then demolished in 1854, the entire building was reconstructed and re-opened in 1976 for the United States Bicentennial as a functioning tavern and restaurant.

The restaurant offers an authentic 18th century experience, and is acclaimed as one of Philadelphia’s best restaurants. On registering, we will ask you to choose one of three offered entrees for your lunch. Go to General Information and Registration pages.
