“An interactive science museum, the Franklin Institute would be a great place to bring the kids. Also fun for adults looking to learn a few things and play around with the science displays. Definitely check out which traveling exhibit is showing at the time.”

“Everyone knows the Philadelphia art museum, but near that. Barnes Foundation is not a well-known museum while it is really worth to visit. Albert C. Barnes, the founder of the Barnes Foundation, is one of the world's greatest collections of impressionist, post-Impressionist and early modernist paintings, especially in Renoir, Cezanne, Matisse, and Picasso. You would have a totally different experience than other museums. $25 for adults, $5 for students. ”

“The most visited attraction in Philadelphia? Reading Terminal Market, the city’s famous indoor food paradise that’s a one-stop shop for local produce, delicious sandwiches, fresh-baked pastries and artisanal cheeses available from dozens of vendors. More than 7.7 million people visited the market in 2018, and for good reason — it’s amazing”
