Celebrate July 4th with the Museum of American Revolution

2nd July 2020

This year’s Independence Day may look and feel a bit different—no big fireworks displays, parades or concerts. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate our nation’s biggest day in a big way! Don your red, white and blue, crank up the A/C and raise a glass to American history, all without leaving your The Victor apartment.

Camden is just a stone’s throw from Old City Philadelphia, where the nation itself was born. While the many historic sites and museums in the area are in varying stages of reopening, several are offering virtual experiences, including the Museum of the American Revolution. The city’s newest museum is the perfect place to mark Independence Day—as it is entirely built around the people, places and events (many local!) that led up to that momentous occasion.

Until the museum reopens, take a virtual tour of the space, where you can explore 360-degree images of each room of the expansive museum. Take in galleries of rare Revolutionary War artifacts, reconstructions like a nearly two-story Liberty Tree and hop on board an 18-century war ship. The “virtual field trip” offers all of these experiences in a curated fashion, with plenty of information and entertainment to keep even the least history-minded visitors engaged. Dive into a digitized collection of hundreds of artifacts and learn about their history and role in the fight for American independence. The museum also features frequent written and video content across its social media channels, showcasing items from the museum as well as little-known bits of American history, with a special focus on Philadelphia’s role in the Revolutionary War.

Once business gets back to normal, see all of this exciting education for yourself, just minutes from your The Victor apartment. The museum is located in the heart of Old City, steps from where the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution were signed, adding even more significance to your visit.

So this July 4th, embrace our newly virtual world and take some time to appreciate the history behind the holiday.
