Sen. Patrick J. Toomey, R-Pa., recently got a sneak peak at the Museum of theAmerican Revolution in Philadelphia, which is set to open to the public on Wednesday.
It is the first national museum that tells the entire story of the American Revolution and has more than 3,000 items in its collection, CBS reported.
Opening day is the anniversary of the “shot heard ’round the world,” the first shots fired in Lexington, Massachusetts, to start the battles of Lexington and Concord.
The senator tweeted about his visit to the new Philadelphia attraction with his wife and son.
