Worth a visit, this is an interesting little church. Doesn't take long to walk round but it's worth exploring. The guides inside are knowledgeable and worth talking to.

We loved our visit here and to see the beauty of this church. We visited the burial sites as well. Doesn't take long but surely worth the visit.....a must do when in Philly!

Just walking in is impressive, the tour guide is very knowledgeable, the organ is gorgeous. The fact this church has been standing this long is something. Go and see it!

This one is a bit off of the beaten path. A quick stop as the church is small. The grave of Ben Franklin is at the churches graveyard, but don’t expect to see that nearby as it is several blocks away from the church.

You are able to sit in the pews and walk throughout the main floor of the church. It's a nice place to sit and relax while walking through historical Philly's attractions. Very beautiful. It doesn't cost to enter, but the church takes donations for visitors.

Had a great time with tour guide Bob on the medical tour of the cemetery. Very informative and he had some very interesting props to boot.

It is a neat old church. A very nice lady who is a current member answered questions and told us about the history. Its worth a stop.

Think of the prayers said here by some of our founding fathers and early settlers. I imagine they gained hope and solace during a critical time for the birth of our democracy.

Be sure to check the hours before you go as the inside is only open during limted hours. You can walk around the grounds and see the graves of several notable Philadelphians.
