Philadelphia History Museum
From the signing of the Declaration of Independence to the creation of the Constitution, Philadelphia has been home to some of America's biggest historical events. The Philadelphia History Museum celebrates the full gamut of the city's more than 300-year legacy. Mere steps from the Liberty Bell, the museum's eight renovated galleries spotlight artifacts and artwork from a collection of more than 100,000 items. With topics spanning from early America to sports, this assemblage includes George Washington's writing desk, John Brown's musket, and Joe Frazier's championship boxing gloves.
The museum includes plenty of interactive elements, too, such as the world's largest map of Philly, across which visitors can walk or fulfill their dreams of doing the worm through every neighborhood. Besides its exhibitions, Philadelphia History Museum hosts a rotating schedule of programs and events, ranging from insightful lectures to concerts.
