Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Our mission is to inspire learning about the history of the American Revolution and the significance of the founding ideals of the Declaration of Independence for Americans and people around the world.

    The American Revolution not only won American independence, but also established ideals of equality, liberty, and self-governance as the founding principles of the United States. The Museum of the American Revolution will preserve and accurately tell the entire story of the Revolution from its causes to its conclusion, bringing to life the vision, achievements, and sacrifices of the Revolutionary generation. The Museum will showcase objects that were “authentic witnesses" to the American Revolution as part of powerful exhibits and on-line content that will utilize dynamic state-of-the-art techniques. The Museum will exemplify the highest standards of curatorial stewardship and historical scholarship.
