National Parks Conservation Association Praises American Revolution Center's Agreement to Locate Museum at Independence National Historical Park

Press Statement by NPCA President Tom Kiernan

“We congratulate the American Revolution Center and the National Park Service on the agreement announced today to locate the Center’s proposed museum at Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia-just a few blocks from Independence Hall. This agreement will allow visitors to enjoy the museum on an appropriate site in a historically-rich area, while also protecting the historic landscape of Valley Forge National Historical Park for our children and grandchildren. We look forward to learning the details of the new site plan, and helping the American Revolution Center and the National Park Service any way we can to make this new plan a reality.”
