Museum of the American Revolution Opens in Philadelphia


Preserving history, connecting families and improving the local community are three core practices of the Latter-day Saint life. Wednesday’s opening of the Museum of the American Revolution (MoAR) is a combination of each.

MoAR, located just a few minutes away from the Church’s new temple in downtown Philadelphia, tells the complete story of the American revolutionary era that dates from 1760 to 1783, when the 13 American colonies broke away from the British Empire and formed the United States of America.

The museum was made possible in part by a donation from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
