The Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent as it is formally has a variety of historical artifacts on display almost all of which related directly to Philadelphia history. They also have a rotatating main exhibit which featured many paintings of great interest during our visit. The museum was the site of the first Franklin Institute and belonged to the pioneer radio manufacturer who's name is still maintained in the museum name.
If you have an hour to spare, you can find some interesting items displayed in a somewhat hodge-podge fashion. Museum is only a very short walk from Independence National Historic Park.
