Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

333 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 site constitutes to me, arguably, one of the most expressive and striking monuments in Philadelphia. It commemorates the victims of 19th century potato famine in Ireland. The composition is deeply moving and strikes many visitors by surprise.The complex sculpture was created by artist Glenna Goodacre in bronze. It truly speaks for itself without words to anyone even vaguely familiar with the19th century Irish history .

I found this very moving as I knew very little of the famines in Ireland. The stone explainers are beautifully done. The sculpture is unusual with so many figures. But they all tell a story. Just stumbled across this by chance and you really should go. Very worthwhile.

Honestly we were not seeking this park-like memorial gardens with an amazing large sculpture depicting the challenges of Irish Immigrants arriving in America. The park/gardens stretch across and above the main north-south Intestate running parallel to the Delaware Riverfront tucked in between Christopher Columbus Blvd and Front Street near the towering Hilton Hotel at Penn’s Landing. Best found by foot on a walking tour. The scenes depicted in the 360 degree “storyboard” of artwork are a mix of happy arrivals to America and the despair of those burying their families that didn’t survive the journey.

Wonderful surprise. Loved the monument and flag and all that it stands for. It is too bad a homeless tent is very close and makes you wonder about the area.

Loved the design and story behind this monument. It is in a tough location to visit but if staying near Penn’s landing- worth the walk to check out!
