The kids will bug you to take them to the Philadelphia Insectarium, a fascinating museum that is designed to educate the public about the wonderful world of insects. The goal of the museum is to show the critical role that insects play in the balance of nature, the environment and our economy. There are two floors of live and mounted insects from around the globe, a tank inhabited by glow-in-the-dark scorpions, a working beehive and a live termite colony.

They published the Medical Missionary Magazine from 1927 to 1970; this remains the best source of historical information about the community. The archives are open to the public.
The House Of The Thousand Thoughts is not a museum like you know it. One could think the history of modern philosophy is not the ideal topic to be communicated in a museum, but the museum is a challenge for the mind and spirit. Through films and exhibits, you will get an overview of the development of the basic ideas that formed our understanding of life and the world today. Exhibits range from prehistoric thinkers like Aristotle or Plato, to the first modern philosophers such as Kant, Hegel or Nietzsche up to the great thinkers of the past century, such as Theodor Adorno or Jean-Paul Sartre. You can also learn how basic philosophical ideas like liberalism or existentialism changed over the centuries and how different philosophers picked those ideas up and influenced each other's work.
