Local Attractions

Philadelphia, PA Local Attractions

Philadelphia Museum of Art

This museum has perhaps the most dramatic location of any in the world being situated on a hill at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway overlooking the Schuylkill. The building was constructed of a golden color stone in the 1920s and recalls the architecture of ancient Greece. Alas, the installation of elaborate multicolor sculpture for the triangular pediments was cut short by the Great Depression.


Fireman's Hall

Stop by this small (and free!) museum on your walking tour of Philadelphia. Staffed by actual firemen, Firemans Hall exhibits artifacts, such as leather buckets and fire marks, once and sometimes still used to fight city fires.


Boathouse Row

The best walking and biking route in the city is along the Schuylkill River. The cluster of 15 rowing clubs host a variety of rowing and running events each year.


Independence Seaport Museum

Philadelphia's maritime museum features interactive exhibits, historic ships (Spanish American war-era cruiser Olympia and WWII-era submarine Becuna) and changing exhibition galleries. Seasonal river tours of the Delaware River and kayaks / rowboat rentals available. Extended evening hours Thursday - Saturday Memorial Day - Labor Day.


Penn Museum

Officially known as the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the Penn Museum, with nearly one million artifacts from all over the world, has one of the most important university collections in the United States. It was enriched by the findings of expeditions carried out by the university since the late 1800s and features several world famous objects from the ancient Near East.


City Hall

The Philadelphia City Hall was completed in 1901 following thirty years of construction. During this period, the original architectural style had gone out of fashion, electric lighting had replaced gas, and steel frame construction replaced heavy masonry.
