The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia __ great place to go with kids in Philadelphia



 We visited Philladelphia right before Christmas and it was the great idea because not only I didn't have to hear how "bored" my daughter was at home, but we really enjoyed our time. 
We arrived at noon, checked in the hotel in downtown Philadelphia and then went to The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. During our visit, the museum was not crowdy at all, they didn't have their own parking so we had to find a parking garage nearby and park the car there. 


Weekday Admission Prices:

Adults (age 13+) __  $19.95
Children (age 2_12) __ $15.95
Seniors (age 65+) __ $16.95
Children under 2 __ free

The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 


My 7 years old daughter loved almost every exhibit in the museum: the dioramas were very impressive __ these displays featured bears, mountain sheep, gorillas, antelopes, zebras and many others, often capturing dramatic moments. We had an opportunity to experience these magnificent animals up close.

Another exhibit we loved was Butterflies. When we walked in this exhibit, we thought we were in a tropical garden filled with colorful plants and live butterflies from Central and South America, Africa and Asia. 
As we learned, they have at the excibit from 60 to 150 butterflies every single day. These butterflies generally live for about two weeks, and every week, they get new butterflies from all around the world. 
During our visit, some of the butterflies were flying, some of them resting on the plants or floor, others __ were eating at food stations (those of you who follow me on Instagram must have seen them in my Insta Stories.)


We got a chance to see and touch a snake and also, an awl that was quite interesting. Dinosaur Hall was also fun but the best part of our visit for my daughter was Outside In excinbit where she got an opportunity to pet the cutest bunny ever.



So, if you to visit Philadelphia with kids, you may stop by at this museum, I'm sure your kids will love it too.


Thanks for reading lovelies.

  5. That bunny does look cute. If I ever visit Philadelphia, The Academy of Natural Species will be one of my stops for sure. I love learning more about animals. Polar bears in particular are very interesting animals.
