This Black Friday, the Museum of the American Revolution invites you to learn about the surprising history of shopping. Meet a revolutionary shopper on her way home from the market and see what she has in her basket. Encounter rare survivals of consumer goods from the 1700s. Learn about what the people who once lived on the site of the Museum once bought, used, and threw away, and how it was discovered by archaeologists. A printed gallery guide will highlight connections to the revolutionary marketplace within the exhibits. 

Did the American Revolutionaries invent the pilgrims? Throughout the weekend, visitors will uncover the unexpected connections between the Pilgrims, Plymouth Rock, and the Revolution. Visitors also will see the Museum’s colorful holiday window illuminations, based on those by Philadelphia artist Charles Willson Peale.  Decorate your windows at home with a fall leaf craft based off our Holiday illuminations.
