Museum's 5th Anniversary Celebration & Shot Heard 'Round the World Commemoration

Join the Museum onsite and online to commemorate the anniversary of the “shot heard ‘round the world,” as Ralph Waldo Emerson later called it, that ignited the Revolutionary War on April 19, 1775. More than 240 years later, on April 19, 2017, the Museum officially opened its doors to the public and has since welcomed more than a million visitors to experience the tumult and transformation of the Revolutionary era. Join us as we celebrate our fifth anniversary!
