Celebrate PA's 338th Birthday!

Pennsylvania residents and visitors are invited to celebrate the commonwealth's 338th birthday on Charter Day, Sunday, March 10 with free admission to many historic sites and museums along the Pennsylvania Trails of History. Charter Day celebrates the founding of Pennsylvania and visitors have a rare opportunity to see the original Charter of Pennsylvania written in 1681. England's King Charles II used the charter to grant the land that is now Pennsylvania to founder William Penn. The document will be on display at the Pennsbury Manor - the re-created private country estate of William Penn which opened to the public as a historic site in 1939.  

Admission to the State Museum of Pennsylvania is free on March 10, 2019 and includes all special presentations. You can view the PA Charter with Pennsylvania State Archives staff in Memorial Hall from Noon - 5:00pm. Free timed tickets are required and must be picked up at the Ground Floor Information Desk.

The past is waiting for you! Book your stay at a nearby Bed and Breakfast.
