Event description

Description

Examining the letters and papers of America's founding fathers offers a rare opportunity to understand these historical leaders as fathers, lovers, intellectuals, and revolutionaries. Artifacts from George Washington (including one of his earliest letters), Thomas Jefferson (including his scientific notes), John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin form the core of the tour.

About Hands-On Tours

Created especially for visitors who seek an in-depth and focused look at our collection, Hands-On Tours allow you unparalleled access to rare and important items that are not usually on view to the public. Depending on the tour, you will have the chance to handle historic items, be it by turning the page of a rare book, testing the weight of a delicate teacup, or reading from a manuscript. Click here for an up-to-date schedule.

Advance Registration

Hands-On Tours are offered almost every Friday at 3:00 p.m. Advance registration is strongly recommended, as there are a limited number of spots on each tour and tours without registrants 48 hours in advance may be cancelled. To register, purchase via Eventbrite, call (215)732-1600, ext. 100 or e-mail rsvp@rosenbach.org.
