In the heart of the Historical District of Philadelphia, you’ll find the Museum of the American Revolution.

The Museum of the American Revolution is home to thousands of original artifacts, including textiles, weapons, printed artworks, sculptures, and manuscripts from this time period. Through storytelling and immersive audiovisual experiences, the museum gives an in-depth history of the events and important figures involved in the revolution and how it has shaped today’s America.

  • The museum takes visitors on a journey through time, though a series of interactive galleries, to examine the roots of the American Revolution. Some of the key features include a two-story, full scale replica of Boston's Liberty tree, a large model of a privateer ship that visitors can board, and an immersive, life-sized diorama, in which audiovisual effects give life to a conversation between Oneida Indian Nation members.

  • Eos Lightmedia worked with Kubik Maltbie (exhibit fabricator) and Available Light (lighting designer) on this project. Eos supplied, installed, focussed and programmed all overhead and integral lighting in the galleries. With a project that required attention to many small details, the team was able to achieve impressive visual effects that match the grand scale of this museum.
