The Betsy Ross House  has a new exhibit designed especially for the younger set.


KYW’s Lynne Adkins reports that the Betsy Ross House, at Second and Arch Streets in Old City Philadelphia, has created a “Kids’ Kitchen” that lets children see and feel what it’s like to make a meal in during Revolutionary times.

Museum manager Michelle Budenz explains that it’s a kitchen without a refrigerator, or stove, or microwave:

“It is a little mock-up of a colonial kitchen.  Kids can come and use our interactive tools like our rolling pin and our knife [Ed.: it's not sharp], our hearth, our bellows, to make a colonial meal.”

She says the Betsy Ross House is making an effort to add more hands-on attractions so visitors of all ages can learn about and enjoy the city’s history.
