On Tuesday, Aug. 21, dozens of representatives from local historical sites and landmarks will visit the Museum of the American Revolution in Old City.
Museum visitors will get to hear famous and lesser-known stories of the Revolution from places like the Betsy Ross House, Valley Forge National Historical Park, Fort Mifflin and Washington Crossing Historic Park – without having to travel to each location, and for only $10.
The staycation event is part of the museum's History After Hours series.
During History After Hours, visitors enjoy full access to exhibits, extended evening hours from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., themed programs, happy hour specials in the museum's Cross Keys Café and games.
On Aug. 21, those who stop into the café for alcoholic refreshments can hang with a young Continental Army veteran, portrayed by a historical interpreter.
Looking ahead, September's History After Hours event will be fashion-themed and October's will be Halloween-themed.
