Everything from classic to eccentric and unexpected
Philadelphia is home to an astounding collection of museums, with a tradition dating back to Benjamin Franklin, the city’s first museum patron. Begin at the Franklin Institute Science Museum is you like to see things at a larger scale. For smaller, more intimate Philadelphia museums, the Polish American Cultural Center Museum and the African American Museum in Philadelphia are two of the city’s cultural gems. You’ll find that Philadelphia’s museums are everything you expect them to be: historic and modern, interactive and exclusive.
