Philadelphia History Museum Celebrates Renovation

This weekend marks the completion of the Philadelphia History Museum’s three-year-long renovation project, which saw the entire infrastructure of the 1826 building utterly overhauled.

In celebration, today and tomorrow, September 22-23, from 11 am-5 pm the museum is offering free admission to the public to view the eight redesigned galleries, featuring four brand-new exhibitions, all for free.

Now able to showcase its vast collection of over 100,000 historical artefacts, in a state-of-the-art and all more appropriate environment, the museum now enhances visitor experience.

Now featuring technology by means of iPads, video areas and even the opportunity for visitors to make a digital self-portrait for inclusion on the museum’s website, the all-round user experience has improved ten-fold.

Boasting such artefacts as William Penn’s shaving bowl and snuffbox, George Washington’s desk and Joe Frazier’s boxing gloves, the Philadelphia History Museum manages to tell the story of the city in both an informative and exciting way.
