Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

288 reviews
Leave the kids at home, because this night tour of Philly is strictly R-rated. Be led along the darker streets of the city, hearing stories of hauntings, executions, vampires, and other chilling tales. See the city's beautiful historic buildings lit up at night, and find out facts about them that you won't hear on standard daytime tours.

This is a wonderful place to visit. Lots of great exhibits to better understand the history, struggles and successes of the Jewish people. The RBG exhibit makes a visit worthwhile on its own.

We were walking back from lunch and saw the building. Went inside and found out it was free when we went. It’s four levels and goes in chronological order. There is a ton to see. Some of it seems silly to be there but overall nice exhibit.

Spent the weekend to Philadelphia with the family. We’ve been interested in Jewish & Israel history. You can learn so much when you take the time to read,and listen to what people have to share. The plight of the Jewish people since the בראשית (beginning) is an amazing story with archeological evidence of a nation that struggled with God. Take the time to visit this museum

The National Museum of American Jewish History is all encompassing with exceptional displays and commentary. You start on the 4th floor and work your way down to the present day in history. This museum is for everyone...old and young alike, Jewish, Non-Jewish, everyone. Though it can be sobering, it was a accurate depiction of what it's like to be a Jew in Europe, United States, and the Middle East and was on point in recounting history. I normally don't speak of museum gift shops but this one was off the charts with Judaica jewelry, books, housewares, etc.... and the prices were decent. Lastly, it wasn't crowded and there's plenty of room so I don't know how many people had this on their 'to do' list, but it's truly an exceptional place to visit. Oh, it's also was Free..I believe all of January and February is Free. If you found my review helpful, please give it a thumbs up. Thanks.
