    Just few steps aways from the National Constitution Center and you will explore the Mall. Very welcoming atmosphere and professional staff.

    Philadelphia is full of impressive, encompassing historic buildings. The Masonic Temple is one remarkable example. Unfortunately it was not open during our visit.

    This behemoth is almost too big. Be sure to take a building map so you won’t get lost in the multiple corridors and floors. Place was mostly in good condition. note that not all restrooms and shops maybe be open. it depends on the activity/conference that day.

    Beautiful old building across the street from the Barnes Foundation. They had a wonderful exhibit of artists books on the second floor, which my wife and I found despite staff at the front desk and even on the second floor not being aware of it.

    What a gem the Rosenbach is! I hadn't been to the Rosenbach for years, but my granddaughter wanted to see it. The tour guide was excellent, the staff who welcomed us filled with enthusiasm. The highlight for me is Marianne Moore's room and the great insight into the Rosenbach brothers, two of the most cultured men of their time. If you love books, the history of Philadelphia, or the world of Marianne Moore, you should visit this gem.

    An outstanding private library in a wonderful 19th century building facing Washington Square. Shareholders are privileged to attend a number of lectures and exhibits annually.

    We returned to campus recently and got a chance to re-visit my favorite building. A place I used to study. The architecture is stunning.

    We attended the opening of the Ghost River exhibit. The Library Company invited Native American guests who were consultants for the book. Mingling with the members allowed for a greater understanding of the good, the bad, and the ugly of colonization depicted in the book. We also got to see several old books and documents, The card catalog actually till exits for researchers who are big users of this location. The Elliott Bible, the first Bible transcribed in a Native American language, was available for viewing. A light appetizer and beverage spread was provided for the guests in the well maintained meeting rooms.

    Next to Independence Hall, the museum of the country’s first learned scientific society, the American Philosophical Society, houses an ever changing exhibition of the sciences and humanities with the current exhibition featuring Thomas Jefferson as a scientist. While this exhibition is relatively small, it is absorbing and well worth your time, especially when waiting to enter Independence Hall.

    This significant Civil War library and museum emphasizes the Union Army's archives. Unfortunately, the museum is currently closed. It's building was sold. It's collection has been moved to The Grand Army of The Republic's Museum in another neighborhood of Philadelphia.

    Really enjoyed our visit, since we are closely linked to the Japanese-American community. The exhibit at the time told the story of Japanese internment in WWII vividly. You will leave knowing much more than when you arrived!

    My wife and I flew out of Philadelphia on United on Sunday early morning
    My wife being a skidish flyer wanted a glass of wine before boarding and even though we held First class tickets, admittance to the United club was not permitted so we purchase two passes at $59 each and after we entered we were told no drinks this early per Philadelphia laws
    We sat for l as than an hour and headed for the gate and surprise, many places in concourse were serving drinks
    We were also informed that the pass was only valid in Philadelphia that day so our layover in Chicago was not included
    Great deal-for United
    Flights were good and nice service but Clubs, they should be ashamed

    I had an early morning flight from PHL Airport during the holiday season in December. When I arrived early in the morning, the Club had not yet opened, so I came back 15 minutes later only to find a line had formed to get in.

    This is a relatively small Club, given the size of the airport it serves. The food for breakfast was pretty good, there was fresh fruit available. The decor is OK, there are some nice paintings on the walls. The staff that welcome you upon arrival could be friendlier.
