    This is a must see after the historical areas. Even as an engineer I leared so many interesting tidbits.

    As a chemistry major, I found this exciting. Additionally as someone interested in textiles and dyes there was a lot of information that informed that interest too. I would highly recommend it. It is small and a bit simplified, but still exciting. Additionally, a few historically important instruments are here, which were pretty amazing to see.

    The exhibits in the museum were detailed and well explained. The whole building has a modern feel to it. Was there for a conference session and the rooms were comfortable and well equipped. The only issue we had was that the wireless wasn't ready for the amount of traffic our group produced.

    Ok, so you really need to be a nerd to like this sort of place but that's my thing. They have a small museum of chemistry with interesting exhibits throughout the history of chemistry. It doesn't take long, so it's a nice place to stop if you have an hour to spare.

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities.
