Washington’s Tent at the new Museum of the American Revolution

Tourists to Philadelphia have a new “must see” stop: The just-opened Museum of the American Revolution located in Old City, Philadelphia.

The product of PMN benefactor/former owner Gerry Lenfest and wife Marguerite, along with Conshohocken scion John Templeton, Jr., the museum tells the story of the revolution using relics from across America’s colonial era: Hessian helmets, Franklin-printed currency, wood from the literal bridge of the Battle of Great Bridge, and all sorts of munition.

The museum’s greatest artifact by far is George Washington’s tent. I recommend this post on the restoration process. The museum reveals the tent only momentarily for groups of visitors in a theatre, with lighting used to show off different parts of the tent. Very cool – worth seeing in person!
