Ticket / Cost

Included with Museum admission

Opening just in time for Flag Day, a new summer exhibition at the Museum will showcase dozens of rare American flags alongside historic early state constitutions and the first printing of the proposed U.S. Constitution of 1787 to shed light on the triumphs and tensions that the United States faced as new states joined the Union. The exhibit will trace the evolution of the American flag by featuring an example of each iteration as new states were added. By telling stories from the nation’s revolutionary roots to its continuing struggle over equal rights, Flags and Founding Documents, 1776-Today will encourage visitors to consider their role in the ongoing effort to fulfill the promise of the American Revolution. The exhibit is open from June 12 – September 6, 2021. Museum admission cost required.
