Step inside George Washington’s Revolutionary War headquarters! The original tent, now on display at the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia, served as his office and sleeping quarters throughout much of the War.

This hand-sewn replica of the tent — created in partnership with Colonial Williamsburg — travels the country to help visitors learn about and understand what life was like under canvas for Washington and his diverse military “family.”

In this exhibit, take part in living history demonstrations, creative activities, and hands-on explorations of Washington’s tent and camp equipment to know what it was like to be in the First Oval Office.
