Tickets to the Museum of the American Revolution in Old City will go on sale February 22, nearly two months in advance of the April 19 opening date.
That isn’t just some random date: It happens to be President George Washington’s birthday.
On that day, folks who buy tickets at the actual museum at 3rd and Chestnut between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. will be able to tour the first floor and eat some cake. At noon, tickets will be available for purchase online.
The price of tickets, which are good for two days, range from $19 for adults; $17 for students, active or retired military, and AAA and AARP members with ID; and $12 for children 6 and up. Kids ages five and under get in for free.
Until April 19, check out our sneak peek of the museum here.
