  • What a wonderful experience! Might sound weird, but the perfect place to visit if you’re not a history buff. The exhibits are so interesting and well done with such a broad range of objects that there is truly something for everyone. A real gem!
  • This historic place is very famous thanks a movie called Rocky and its stairs are popular. It's full of art and culture. Awesome pieces of art. The museum is great and unique.
  • For tourist like us there's a $10 fee, student discount available. It's small 2 floors but house different and interesting artifacts and is a great source of all things Philly.
  • Three (3) stars is probably too generous. There is barely anything at this museum. I saw just a bunch of portraits and a few minor exhibits.
  • I had a great time. I enjoyed seeing the history of Philadelphia it was really cool.
