Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent

Known as the birthplace of America, the City of Philadelphia has a fascinating history of its own. The Philadelphia History Museum recounts the city’s narrative with artifacts dating back to 1680, exhibits tracing its industrial, cultural, political and social roots—and the world’s largest map of Philadelphia.
