Museum Of The American Revolution

State-of-the-art museum includes a ten-minute movie whose screen raises to reveal George Washington's tent (No photos of the tent allowed). It also has multiple interactive exhibits. It's filled with numerous authentic pieces from the Revolutionary War.

The sacred tent exhibit is a new variant of the old "George Washington Slept Here" plaques and historical markers.
