Sometime around April 19 in Philadelphia a new Museum of the American Revolution is opening at 3rd and Chestnut St. As I get more info I will post it here.

@Pan: I agree 100%.

My brother and I plan to take my dad there this Summer.

Private non-profit?

April 19. Anniversary of Lexington and Concord. Fitting.

Did learn this week it is a private museum as opposed to a goverment run, but Gen Washington's tent is there and I did see it at Valley Forge many years ago. Also the consortium lead by former Gov. Rendell who got it going wanted to put it at Valley Forge but road blocks changed the location.

Went today, lots of weapons and items from the period. They used story boards to explain the progression of the war. . Quite a few short movies to see and George Washington's tent is there. ( saw this over 30 years ago in Valley Forge). It was somewhat crowded at 10am ( opens at 9:30) but in afternoon went back as a few of my party missed the tent and it wasn't near as crowded. Was well worth the time if in a trip to Philadelphia and can be seen in 3 hrs.

That's what I was asking above. So it is a private non-profit.

It is private, not sure if it is non proffit
