Founding of America
Walk through the Founding of America exhibit, and learn more about life in Colonial America, like the kinds of food Colonial Americans ate, and what a Revolutionary War soldier’s uniform looked like. Read facsimiles of documents written by our Founding Fathers (we have the originals in our archive area - to see them, ask about our Behind the Scenes tours). If you’re lucky, you may catch Alexander Hamilton’s coat on one of its three month stints on display in our exhibit.
