Science Museum
“An interactive science museum, the Franklin Institute would be a great place to bring the kids. Also fun for adults looking to learn a few things and play around with the science displays. Definitely check out which traveling exhibit is showing at the time.”

Art Museum
“Everyone knows the Philadelphia art museum, but near that. Barnes Foundation is not a well-known museum while it is really worth to visit. Albert C. Barnes, the founder of the Barnes Foundation, is one of the world's greatest collections of impressionist, post-Impressionist and early modernist paintings, especially in Renoir, Cezanne, Matisse, and Picasso. You would have a totally different experience than other museums. $25 for adults, $5 for students. ”
