Museum of the American Revolution Selects Gateway Ticketing Systems for Unified Ticketing, Online Sales and Food & Beverage Solution
Gilbertsville, PA (February 17, 2017) – In the summer of 2016, the Museum of the American Revolution, embarked on an RFP process for a robust ticketing solution for their new museum. They selected their Pennsylvania neighbor, Gateway Ticketing Systems, located only 50 miles from the Museum’s historic neighborhood in Philadelphia.
The Museum, set to officially open to the public on April 19, expects an annual attendance of 550,000 visitors. Online ticket sales, which will be powered by the responsive design of Gateway’s eGalaxy™ Web Store, will go on sale at noon February 22, in honor of George Washington’s 285th birthday. Additionally, from 10 a.m.-noon that day, tickets will be available for sale on-site for those who go to the Museum in person. These ticket-buyers will be able to get a sneak peek inside the Museum’s first floor. Online membership sales are currently underway on the Museum’s Web Store.
Additionally, the Museum will implement Galaxy® point-of-sale software for ticketing, resource management, stored value and upsell functionality as well as admission control.
“We selected Gateway Ticketing Systems for many reasons including their extensive museum experience and their encompassing solutions that enable us to unify our operations for ticketing, admission control, and food and beverage,” says ZeeAnn Mason, Chief Operating Officer at the Museum of the American Revolution. “We are pleased that Gateway’s headquarters are within an hour’s drive.
