An amazing collection of artifacts collected by/donated to the University makes this a top notch attraction in Philadelphia. The museum is well organized and accessible for everyone.

World famous, worth a visit if you're a tourist. The spaces are quite beautiful, as well as the building architecture. Do be sure to visit the archaeological museum.

I found two good campus type restaurants on 40th St. Greek Lady was fresh with plenty to select. Hip City Veg was next door to the Greek Lady. There are several more restaurants within walking distance of The Gables.
