Anchoring the eastern end of Independence National Historical Park at the corner of Third and Chestnut Streets, the Museum introduces visitors to the American Revolution with an extraordinary collection of historical artifacts and contemporary interpretations demonstrating the continued worldwide importance of the Revolution. In addition to permanent and temporary exhibition galleries, theaters, education spaces, collection storage, and offices, the Museum opens to Third Street with a café and a shop. The Museum's restrained Classicism complements its many cherished neighbors of national historical importance, including Independence Hall, Carpenters' Hall, the First Bank of the United States, and the Merchants Exchange; at the same time the building stands as a singular portrait of the Museum and its mission and as a new, identifiable icon for historic Philadelphia. RAMSA Partners Robert A.M. Stern, Alexander P. Lamis, and Kevin M. Smith led the design effort. For information, click here.

"Building Museums" 2018 will actively engages participants in sessions and discussion including expert keynote addresses, behind-the-scenes, museum tours, two receptions, and a workshop.
