As part of the kick off to Philly Cider Week, the Museum of the American Revolution is partnering with the Pennsylvania Cider Guild as part of their existing History After Hours program. This event will showcase a presentation by Jay Duckworth, the props master from the Broadway hit play Hamilton, plus a presentation on the “history of cider” in the Americas spotlighting the colonial era by the Pennsylvania Cider Guild and Museum Curator, Mark Turdo. Pennsylvania cider producers will be on hand showcasing their use of the apple and why it is re-emerging as one of the United States premier beverages, just like it was in colonial times. Come and learn about spy tactics, trickery and deception during the revolutionary war and see why PA Cider was the "Fuel of the Revolution”!
The Museum’s monthly History After Hours events feature extended evening hours, special themed programs, happy hour food and drink in the Cross Keys Cafe, and full access to the museums exhibits. Tickets for History After Hours are $10 and can be purchased online here or at the door.
