You don’t have to be a history buff to find it almost breathtaking when one of the nation’s most treasured artifacts is revealed before your eyes at the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia.

Among the museum’s impressive collection is Gen. George Washington’s Revolutionary War Tent which served as the first commander-in-chief’s office, sleeping quarters and mobile command center for the Continental Army. The tent was present at the scene of many pivotal moments, including the 1781 Siege of Yorktown, the last major land battle of the Revolutionary War.

Join Martz Bus for this extraordinary historic tour of Philadelphia on Memorial Day — Monday, May 27.

They’ll also visit the historic Eastern State Penitentiary, once the most famous and expensive prison in the world. It’s in ruins today but stands as a haunting reminder of its once grand architecture which held almost 85,000 people over its long history including Bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and “Scarface” Al Capone. Our guided tour includes hands-on history experiences, award-winning exhibits and “The Voices of Eastern State” audio tour narrated by actor Steve Buscemi.

Lunch at the Museum of the American Revolution is included, along with a buffet dinner at The Plough & The Stars, an authentic Irish eatery in the Philadelphia’s Old City District.
