Academy of Natural Sciences

By most people’s standards, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University is old — founded in 1812, it’s the oldest natural sciences institution in the Western Hemisphere. But the Academy is a baby compared to the specimens it houses, some of which date back more than 350 million years. Explorers Stephen Long and Ferdinand Hayden’s series of western wilderness expeditions formed the foundation of the Academy's 18-million-item collection, which it began displaying to the public in 1828. Now situated at 19th and Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Academy houses more than 35 dioramas of plants and animals collected during global wildlife expeditions, a hands-on children's nature center, and a signature Dinosaur Hall. Guests can get face-to-face with towering dinosaurs, meet live animals, and explore a tropical garden filled with live butterflies. With interactive science exhibits from around the globe, a fossil dig, and opportunities to interact with science experts, Philadelphia’s natural history museum offers surprises for all ages.

One of the best museums! Love the butterfly exhibit.

My 4yr old loved it. She was amazed by the huge dinosaurs and the butterfly room.

I enjoyed visiting the Academy of Natural Sciences when my children were young. I enjoy it even more now although I am looking forward to visiting often with my grandchildren also. I have already recommended membership to my friends.
