- Visitors can explore the Museum's new hands-on exhibit Hamilton Was Here: Rising Up in Revolutionary Philadelphia, which highlights Alexander Hamilton's Philadelphia connections through playful games and activities.
- Visitors can dress up in reproduction 1790s clothing, load a full-sized replica cannon, and design a coin inspired by early American symbols, among other activities.
- Each activity seeks to inspire visitors to think about Hamilton's contributions to the founding of the United States and how they can carry these lessons forward as they face the challenges of citizenship today.
- From 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., visitors can stop by an activity table in the Museum's rotunda to learn the art of paper cutting, "scherenschnitte," brought to America by German immigrants, and create paper ornaments inspired by artifacts in the Museum's collection to take home.
