Revolutionary Marketplaces-Holiday Illuminations

On Black Friday, the Museum of the American Revolution invites you to learn about the surprising history of shopping. Meet a revolutionary shopper on her way home from the market and see what she has in her basket. Encounter rare survivals of consumer goods from the 1700s. Learn about what the people who once lived here bought, used, and threw away, and how it was discovered today. A printed gallery guide highlights connections to the revolutionary marketplace within the exhibits. You can also see the Museum’s colorful holiday window illuminations, based on those by Philadelphia artist Charles Willson Peale, and make one of their own to take home.
