Thank you for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed our Escape Room even if it was challenging. I hope you still managed to retrieve the battle plans and save General Washington and the Revolution! We appreciate your additional information about the experience as well.

Enjoyed learning how Chadds Ford, PA got its name and viewing the house where John Chadd ran a tavern. There is not much to see in the museum so our visit was brief.

It is THE place around Chadds Ford to learn about our history. It has old-old stuff, and fairly new stuff. Always a good time
