Philadelphia is America's birthplace and is well known for Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art - one of the finest in the world. Few realize that alongside these treasures, the city is home to more than one hundred permanent collections open to the public, including the largest number of historic house museums in the country. Philadelphia's collections range from the Johnson House Historic Site with its important Underground Railroad artefacts and the Academy of Natural Sciences' Dinosaur Hall to the colonial naturalist John Bartram's forty-five acre garden in the heart of the city and the Civil War Museum and Library

Visiting museums is one of the best ways to get to know a city. Westholme’s museum guides, written by professionals and designed for both residents and visitors, are the first-ever uniform compilations of permanent collections open to the public in America’s major cities. Each city has its own unique group of museums, some famous, others practically unknown, but all of them are important parts of our nation's cultural life.Review:
