  • The Rosenbach Museum & Library
    Most book-lovers consider all libraries invaluable. So just imagine how they feel about one whose collection includes the only surviving copy of the very first Poor Richard Almanac. When the book-dealing Rosenbach brothers passed away in 1954, they left behind an incomparable collection including that book and the manuscript of Ulysses. Today the library has expanded to include Bram Stoker's notes for Dracula and more than 400,000 other works of fine art and historic artifacts. Size: besides the main collection in the Rosenbach's original home, the museum has expanded into the Maurice Sendak Building next door Eye Catcher: the Rosenbach can be found on the 2000 block of Delancey place The Building: the 1865 townhouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and can be explored only with guided tours offered on the hour Permanent Mainstay: modernist poet Marianne Moore's entire living room now resides at the Rosenbach, having been transported piecemeal and reassembled on-site Don't Miss: the lively event schedule, which includes temporary exhibits spotlighting influential authors, reading groups focused on local writers, and concerts by musician-in-residence Dave Burrell

  • National Museum of American Jewish History
    The National Museum of American Jewish History's core exhibition traces more than 350 years of American Jewish history, documenting their triumphs and struggles since first settling in 1654. Spread across 25,000 square feet on five floors, the exhibition's historical objects and lifelike environments cover subjects such as the late 19th-century Jewish immigration and the involvement of American Jews in the Civil Rights Movement. As the exhibition moves into the present day, visitors can share their own stories and opinions in two of the museum's interactive stations: It's Your Story and the Contemporary Issues Forum. After sharing their own journeys, guests can explore the Only in America Gallery/Hall of Fame, where multimedia displays and original artifacts highlight the lives of prominent Jewish Americans, including Irving Berlin and Est?e Lauder. Cups of Old City Coffee, baked goods from LeBus, and vegetarian and dairy cuisine from Di Bruno Bros. reenergize museum-goers at the Pomegranates Caf?; kosher fare is also available.

  • National Liberty Museum
    It's more than a collection of exhibits, galleries, and glass works?though it's all of those things, too. Above and beyond housing art, the National Liberty Museum aims to serve as a mirror to the unique kaleidoscope that is the United States. Visitors to the museum explore eight galleries, each organized to highlight a particular aspect of what it means to be American. Liberty Hall, for instance, houses a selection of White House fine china alongside medals awarded to members of the armed services, while Heroes Hall showcases glass sculptor Dale Chihuly's massive Flame of Liberty installation in celebration of brave individuals. Regardless of how visitors tackle the museum?although they should never tackle it literally, due to the high volume of glass?they'll likely find themselves intrigued by the thought-provoking collection. When Irvin J. Borowsky founded the museum in 1995, he did so with just this intent, seeking to inspire others to pursue more peaceful lives. But Borowsky may never have envisioned the scale it would one day reach: 78 exhibits, 179 works of contemporary art, and thousands of stories vividly told.

  • African American Museum in Philadelphia
    Since its founding in 1976, the African American Museum in Philadelphia has worked to preserve and honor African Americans' heritage through exhibitions, collections, and cultural programs. Four galleries contain exhibits delving into themes including the African diaspora, African American life in Philadelphia, and contemporary African American narratives. The core exhibition, Audacious Freedom: African Americans in Philadelphia 1776?1876, showcases a timeline detailing how African Americans lived in that era, and brings key historical figures to life through 10 life-size video projections. Visitors can interact with each of the projections, listening to their stories and requesting further topics of discussion, such as the Internet's role in their lives. Another gallery focuses on African American life post-emancipation leading up to the modern day. In addition to engaging exhibitions, the museum also boasts an extensive collection of historical artifacts, including Negro league baseball memorabilia, records, musical instruments, photographs, and the time machine that was used to retrieve each item.
