Mummers Museum

Mummers Museum

The Mummers and their New Year’s Day Parade are uniquely Philadelphia, and the Mummers Museum at 2nd Street and Washington Avenue is dedicated to celebrating the Mummers clubs, costumes and movable scenery that have officially marked New Year’s Day in Philadelphia since 1901. The museum houses a rich collection of Mummers memorabilia and an on-site gift shop and hosts outdoor string band concerts during the summer months.
