Very well presented history in many media forms (displays, videos, audio clips, interactive maps, photos and artifacts) detailing a historical view of the Jewish experience in America.
Also, excellent representation of the differing views and arguments within the Jewish communities over the years over matters of religious orientation as well as issues of the day wherever they were...such as choo...

The best view is from the 2nd floor mezzanine , but the music fills the Grand Court and is still worth the trip especially during the Christmas Holiday season.
Pretty awesome site to see and even more festive if you go near Christmas and see all the decorations giving the golden organ even more life and color.

The best part is that there are so many wonderful historical sites within a relatively small area it is perfect for the mobility impaired - if you are lucky with the weather.

This is a wonderful guided tour of an incredible landmark featuring the beautiful, lodge halls and some of George Washington's masonic treasures.
Very impressive historic building - stunning architecture, beautiful temples (each of them with a different theme) and dare to say at least as (in my view actually even more) fascinating than visiting churches.

The outstanding museums, historic sights and sport complexes in Philadelphia are easily accessed by Uber or public transportation.
Many people visit Philly for that historic flavor, such as touring the Liberty Bell site, Independence Hall where our political culture was born, the site where Congress was housed for years before D.C. became its...

Excellent 360 degree views of this beautiful city, your ticket allows two visits within 48hrs - so you can enjoy the views by day and nighttime, well worth the visit!
The view was perfect, great setting for beautiful photos (we took many lol), and the staff was just as amazing with friendly smiles and genuine greetings.

... historic city in the USA, where history abounds on every street corner with nicely preserved architecture from houses to churches, its university campus tucked away near downtown and numerous historic sights.
Great museum and excellent way to view the history of the good ole USA.. Site is near other historical locations and well worth your time for a visit.

There are many interesting food options, plenty of nice and helpful staff, a variety of nice views from seats, and it's fun to watch the Phillies play!
The sight lines are very good--a view of Center City framed in the outfield, the food is excellent.I could write a separate review just on the food alone!

You'll find lots of major historical sites here, such as Independence Hall, where our country was born to where Congress first met and where an earlier, smaller Supreme Court met, etc. Oh, and the Liberty Bell, too.

Be sure to take the elevator ride to the Observation Deck, which affords excellent views of the city, the surrounding countryside and the 'larger-than-life statue of William Penn.
For $12 you get a great tour through this wonderful building and a fantastic 360 degree view from the observation deck under William Penn's hand.

great place to take a walk in, sit to enjoy the sites, observe the birds, watch people of all ages as well as the hosted events in the park.
It is surrounded by tall residential buildings, and has a great view of the staircase roof of the first skyscraper of Philadelphia, the Liberty Place.

It's easy to miss Boathouse Row if you confine your visit to the museums or historical sites, but just past the museum are the Water Works and Boathouse Row, both of which are real gems.

The lines move quickly, there is plenty of information, pictures, and displays to see as you walk through the line, and from the bell, there are excellent views of Independence Hall.
Right behind it, through a glass window is a perfect view of Independence Hall and right and right in front is the Visitor Center which I recommended visiting first.

30th street is located near the Art Museum and other Philadelphia landmarks and centrally located for connections to other rail systems serving the Philadelphia metro area and beyond.
We got to the station early on our return trip and spent some extra time trying out the food options and taking in the sights of this lovely train station.

Always on my list of historic sights for visiting guests, I love this quiet and cobblestoned alley (mind your step) as a way to envision what life was like in the early part of the city & the nation's history.
This street is also easy walking to many historical sites as well as eateries, coffee shops, boutiques and art houses.

We have 2 days planned in the city but we found it difficult to navigate the old city as it has so many historical sites and the information is a huge span for a young schooler.
You can do worse than just work your way around ALL the benches with your children, and you yourself get to cover all the historical sites nearby.

They also host many concerts as well as recently the DNC- put political views aside, if Philly has been chosen more than once to host a Political event- this space must be pretty good.
The view was awesome, the tickets were reasonably priced and the game was great!

Yes, you can see Ben Franklin's grave from just outside the gate, but it's a mere $3 to enter the entire cemetery to view the other headstones present.
In the corner of Christ Church's Graveyard (which is actually a few blocks from Christ Church) is the site of Benjamin Franklin and his wife Deborah.
