  • Gorgeous place with a huge history lesson. Nice place to have a wedding. Make sure you use Feastivities Caters. They were the best!!!!
  • My daughter and I have been quite a few times. Visit twice in 2017-recommend highly for all nationalities, ethnicities & cultures. Family events throughout the year has always been packed with all things and information exclusively no matter childs age. History is history, whether my story, your story or our story. Top of echelon-must go see musuems, even if it is in between exhibits; which for the most part always been a plus each time we have visited.
  • This is a big and very informative museum on the history of the Jewish people in America. I took a guided tour and the tour guide was very informative and entertaining. The only downside is the price of admission. Other than that I would highly recommend you come here.
  • Sternly informational and VERY EASY to find. They even have a free preview that you can look at before hand just in case if your not sure if you want to view the entire thing yet. The staff there is AMAZING and super helpful. Definetly would recommend
  • A very interesting look at the history of American Jewry. Interactive exhibits keep things interesting for kids. The special exhibits about famous American Jews was also quite interesting and had some amazing artifacts. Plan time to find local parking. Admission rates were very reasonable. A great place for both adults and families.

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.
