This impressive, multimedia-rich museum will have you virtually participating in the American Revolution; interactive dioramas and 3D experiences take you all the way from contentment with British rule to the eventual rejection of it. Learn about the events, people, cultures and religions that participated in one of the world's most important revolutions. Lots of hands-on displays and video stories mean kids will have as much fun as adults. Note that all tickets are timed: reserve them early online.
