A Free Museum For Science Geeks


Unlike Philly’s other great science museum, this one is free AND you will have it all to yourself with no kids crashing into you on the way to the giant heart.  Chemistry and life sciences are the focus of this art and artifact filled museum – from its beginnings in alchemy, through understanding DNA, to modern-day issues of global warming.



Who wouldn’t want to play with a “Using Mercury” chemistry kit??



The museum recently had a name change, and is now called the Science History Institute
