  • My friend was an art person and my first time visit to this place.. thought it was boring but I liked the museum and a lot of good information!!
  • A great bit of history in such a small place. There's tons of artwork from LGBT on the first floor and lower floor. As you go up there's much more on liberty from around the world with pictures and videos, as well as some interactive listening stations. Great for all ages to learn.
  • Well done museum in old city. Lot's of unique exhibits.
  • Wonderful exhibits about people who stood up for all sorts of rights and liberty...from early settlers to gay rights activists. And the Dale Chihuly and other glass artists' sculptures were a beautiful counterpoint. We think the museum needs a better name and external advertising that is more appropriate to the content...but it was a treat to actually go in and find very moving exhibits (that I didn't expect at all from the outside...thought it was a touristy, right-wing rah-rah kind of place and it's not at all!! Great for the family, with activities especially for kids, interactive exhibits, and a lot to inspire all of us to be courageous and to stand up for what's right and for those who are denied their rights.) And the 9/11 photos are of first responders, police and firefighters and others who gave their lives in service of others.
  • You need to make your way to the famous glass chess board that used to be at corning glass musuem

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. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
