African American Museum in Philadelphia
Gallery Two of the core exhibit Audacious Freedom: African Americans in Philadelphia 1776-1876 will be of most interest to kids, who can watch and listen as life-size, hi-def projections of historical characters share accounts of life in early Philadelphia. Along the Children’s Wall in the same gallery, younger kids ages 3-8 can follow the lives of three children from the late 18th to the 19th centuries.
Did You Know?: Alice of Dunk’s Ferry, a Philadelphian who had been in contact with William Penn and George Washington, lived to be more than 100 years old.
