  • In a second Bank in the historic district of Philadelphia, America's oldest firstbank also walked two banks in Philadelphia and is a few minutes away. Founded about 200 years ago, 25 years after the first Bank, so stands out from the first bank building.

  • Interesting these portraits of all the Presidents, very beautiful and unique works. The Museum is not large but well articulated.

  • This museum holds the majority of the portrait paintings made by Charles Willson Peale and displayed in his museum. He painted most of the important men of the day while delegates from the various states tried to improve on the Articles of Confederation and ended up creating the Constitution of the United States of America - the miracle at Philadelphia.
  • Free museum stuffed full with original portraits of early US power brokers. Some amazing paintings of guys like Franklin and Washington, as well as a lot of the guys (and some gals) you don't hear about as often. Each painting has a little paragraph about who the person was. Great way to get a lot of history in one place. Maybe my favorite destination in the area. The building needs a little love, but the exhibitions are top-notch.
  • Broad swath of local and national history through a series of portraits and paintings. Well curated exhibits.
  • It is actually an art gallery despite the name.
  • The former building of the Second Bank of the US serves as an Art Gallery right now. The place is full, crowded with portrait of significant characters of American History, such as Quincy Adams and Washington. Although tours are not offered, the park rangers gave me a brief tour of the most important ones. A must visit in Independance Park
