Silly in Philly: All Kinds of Museums To Be Found!


Philadelphia is home to all different kinds of museums! Heading into medicine? Test your nerves with art at Drexel University College of Medicine’s East Falls campus, brush those pearly whites for Dr. and Mrs. Edwin Weaver III Historical Dental Museum or learn medical history at Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Hospital. Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses (and other plants) at The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and Bartram’s Garden, but be on the lookout for the creatures to explore at The Insectarium and  Wagner Free Institute! Follow through with other sciences at The Franklin Institute, The School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania and Museum at the Chemical Heritage Found! Bookworms of all sorts should “check out” the international exposure at Free Library of Philadelphia, the mystique at The Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia or enjoy a quirky combo at Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse. “Rock” on to the sounds at Ringing Rocks Park or “strut” on down to Mummers Museum. Looking for food and drink? Make a stop at Pizza Brain museum and  Barcade, full of tap rooms and beer. Travel back in time at the ex-prison Eastern State Penitentiary, The Wharton Esherick Museum or Mercer Museum, which explores early American life. Observe fascinating architecture and urbanism at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, Masonic Temple and  James A. Michener Art Museum. Speed on to the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum and American Helicopter Museum and Education Center. If you need something wicked, head to Whispering Benches or Laurel Hill Cemetery. Shoes on shoes on shoes can be found at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine Shoe Museum. There’s something for everyone!
