One of our favorite stops in Philadelphia was the Betsy Ross House. While not big, there was something exciting about being in the home of the legendary first flag maker.
The Betsy Ross House is small and narrow, and it’s interesting to see what homes of that period were like. We went through the house on our own, peeking into the rooms. The kids enjoyed a small hands-on exhibit in the basement.
Inside the gift shop, a candlemaker and musician played for us. The kids were especially intrigued by these artists.
The Betsy Ross House is not part of the National Park Service, and charges a small amount for admission to the house. It’s a nice stop along a Philadelphia history tour.
