Museums & Attractions in Philadelphia

Philadelphia’s museums and attractions are small and massive, historic and modern, interactive and exclusive, eccentric and unexpected.

Have you ever stood in awe of art exhibited not by artist or era, but by aesthetic, like the French impressionist and post-impressionist paintings are arranged at the Barnes Foundation?

Or peered through drawers of items that patients once swallowed (!), as can be seen at The Mütter Museum at the College of Physicians?

From the history-making locations (Independence Hall, birthplace of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution) to one of the most visited (Reading Terminal Market, welcoming millions of diners and shoppers each year), these are Philadelphia’s destination-defining — and trip-defining — attractions.
