The American Revolution Museum at Yorktown achieved a crucial milestone with the October 15 public debut of an introductory film, permanent exhibition galleries, interactive exhibits and the new museum name. Throughout the immersive 22,000-square-foot exhibition space, visitors admired a coronation portrait of King George III, a July 1776 broadside of the Declaration of Independence surrounded by the names of those who signed the document, and exhibits outlining Revolutionary War conflicts in the southern states, including the Siege at Yorktown, and how America has influenced the world. After completion of a new outdoor living-history Continental Army encampment and Revolution-era farm, a grand opening celebration will be held in Spring 2017.
