Besides Independence Hall and Liberty Bell and if you have not been to any museums in Philadelphia, we recommend Philadelphia Museum of Art and Rodin Museum.

Located at the end of Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia Museum of Art is the third largest museum in the United States. And the museum also administers 2 historic homes, namely, Mount Pleasant and Cedar Grove.

The museum has over 80 period rooms including medieval cloister and Indian temple, and Renaissance, American, Impressionist, and Modern art pieces.

Mount Pleasant was the home of Scottish ship captain John Macpherson built on a cliff overlooking the Schuylkill River. The home was one of the grandest houses in the 1700s and today it is still on its original site. Cedar Grove was the summer residence for many notable Philadelphia families. It is worth a visit if you like to see an indoor bake oven and the unusual two-sided wall of closets on the second floor. You'll also see original early Pennsylvania furniture.

The small Rodin Museum is located between The Free Library of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Museum of Art's main building on Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The museum was designed by French architect Paul Cret and French landscape designer Jacques Greber. It has the most comprehensive Rodin collection outside of Paris.
