This is the largest and most grandiose gardens in the world. It has over 11,000 types of plants in 40 indoor and outdoor sustainable gardens. The garden also has a children’s conservatory, fountain displays, and live musical performances.
It was the first real “penitentiary” in the world before it became open to the public in 1829. It is now considered as one of the most preserved historic sites in Philadelphia. Tours are available for visitors to go around the haunted structure that used to be home to some of the most notorious criminals like Al Capone. The audio tour is narrated by well-known actor Steve Buscemi.
The College of Physicians of Philadelphia Mutter Museum, or just Mutter Museum as more popularly known, is known for its display of medical oddities. A warning goes out to those with a faint heart or stomach as the display includes fetuses in jars, unusual body parts, Albert Einstein’s brain, conjoined twins, and more.
This museum has the best collection of archeology and anthropology in the US. It has over 30 galleries that feature a variety of collected items around the world. There are Greek coins, Egyptian mummies, Native American totem poles, and more.
Considered as the most world-class of all art museums, the Philadelphia Museum of Art holds art collections from legendary artists such as Monet, Picasso, Rodin, and Van Gogh. It has numerous theme rooms that hold ancient artifacts, such as the Asian pieces that dates back 8,000 years ago.
This art museum used to be located at the western suburbs before its “controversial” move to downtown Philadelphia. It is the first ever LEED-gold certified institution in the United States. It features the Impressionist paintings of the late Dr. Alfred Barns. It also hosts events and exhibitions.
This indoor city market is a great place to to dine and shop. It features a variety of restaurants, bakeries, sandwich vendors, and organice produce. There are also shops that sell books, plants, houseware, and Pennsylvania Dutch products. The market has a public classroom where chefs and other culinary experts can host events and give cooking lessons and demos.
Philadelphia’s important role in the history of the United States can be reminisced and learned here at the Independence National Historical Park. With an area of some 20 city blocks, the cobblestone streets gives a glimpse of colonies’ first education, culture, service, and religious institutions. The popular Liberty Bell can be found at the Independence Mall.
A visit to this center includes a multimedia theater presentation, a tour through the museum, and to experience the various interactive exhibits.RELATED ARTICLES Philadelphia Demographics Philadelphia Geography and Climate Philadelphia Culture Philadelphia Sports

Totally unexpected but appreciated!
Professional installation of a beautiful new pool deck. The crew are highly skilled craftsmen and really helped guide us on which colors made sense for our backyard area. Because they knew we couldn’t use the pool until they finished, they came back on a Saturday evening to complete the work. Totally unexpected but appreciated! Highly recommended!Read more

I would highly recommend and would not think twice.
Very happy. I previously had an exposed aggregate pool deck that was not only outdated, but also extremely painful to walk on. Sundek fixed all the problems - the pool deck now looks beautiful and is a dream to walk on.
The crew does a truly professional job. I would highly recommend and would not think twice.
