The Philadelphia History Museum relies on the generosity of donors to sustain its mission to serve greater Philadelphia by fostering among its citizens and visitors a deeper understanding and appreciation of the city, its historical artifacts, and its rich legacy. The Museum’s purpose is to educate present generations, especially school children, to learn from the past in ways that enrich their lives, and improve their futures.

Support the 2016 Annual Appeal

It's our diamond anniversary! Make a gift of $75 (or multiples thereof) to go towards continuing student and adult programs at the Museum. We will be refurbishing and relighting our handsome 19th Century gas lanterns flanking the building's exterior facade during our anniversary year, and we continue to collect funds to make that happen. Your gift will truly make a difference!
