this was the internet
2021年8月
this place is amazing. you have only to imagine the volumes of information this Institute of Science provided to many researchers. this was the internet. the specimens were ther to examine and compare. to many this would be the only means to see many of the animales and species displayed. Other things that are interesting is how some of our knowledge about items in the museum has broadened and the info on some of the cards is outdated. I will go any time I am in Philly. i underastand why, but I wish I could take pictures. Please go and please leave a donation

A hidden gem in Philadelphia!
2018年12月
The Wagner is a rad museum that even many Philly residents have never heard of--I always recommend it to visitors and it can be a great alternative (or complement) to the Mutter. Free/donation museum where you step back in time to the Victorian era, and can view the museum's impressive display of antique specimens (fossils, minerals, preserved animals, etc). They also have really great programming--check their website for special events or to see what classes they are teaching.

The programs are generally held in the lecture hall, where you can truly pretend to be a 19th-century scientist. I've attended events on topics ranging from "whimsical taxidermy" (where a local resident displayed his large private collection of Victorian taxidermied animals set into scenes/dressed up like people) to the annual lantern slide event, which brings archivists from around the city to give a short presentation of their collection using the original lantern slide projector (in one I learned all about the giant Stetson factory that used to be in North Philly).

So grateful for this wonderful museum and the people who have kept this special place going!

Not open on Mondays!
2018年9月 • 独自旅游
The website says the Institute is open on Mondays, but when I rolled up this morning it was firmly closed and the sign said Tuesday-Friday. So double check before you go.

Imperdible
2018年2月 • 家庭
Un espacio ejemplar de lo que fue la educación científica popular del siglo pasado y del XIX. La sala de conferencias y de proyecciones es una joya, y hasta ahora es la primera que he visto que se conserve en ese estado.
La sala del museo es interesante, algunos de los preparados también son únicos (los erizos, el armadillo y la tortuga desmontados, por ejemplo). Muy interesante el sistema de las ventanas y la calefacción

Great small Museum!
2017年6月 • 家庭
We visited the museum with our 16 year old son. When we entered the second floor exibit hall he gasped and said this is really cool! It it virtually unchanged since the late 1800's and is really something to see. It is free but a donation is recommended. We also parked on the side of the museum for free.

Unlike anything I've ever seen

This is a perfectly preserved snapshot into the realm of science in the 1800s. Fossils, minerals, taxidermy, and more! A perfect museum for the science lover, and has such an authentic feel. It is FREE but donations are accepted. Easy access to metro, I spent 1.5 hours happily. Please respect the space.

Natural History in a 19th Century Victorian Hall
2016年4月 • 独自旅游
The museum's structure itself is as much a part of the appeal as the exhibits. The museum is a 19th century exhibit hall. The exhibits include a remarkable collection of natural history specimens including mounted birds and mammals, fossils, rocks and minerals, insects, shells, dinosaur bones, and the first American saber-toothed tiger (discovered on a museum-sponsored expedition to Florida in 1886). The collections are displayed in wood and glass cabinets dating from the 1880s and maintain their original “systematic” scheme, providing a unique view of a Victorian science museum. The collections and exhibits are very fascinating. What I would have liked to see is more displays explaining the exhibits and providing related info. Also, there are apparently no guided tours (at least it was not offered); a staff member provided a brief history and map of the exhibit hall and that was it. One last limitation is the museum's hours; it is only open during the week. Still, I would enthusiastically encourage a visit to this engrossing museum. Lastly, there is no admittance fee, but I would recommend making a donation at the end of your visit (as I did); the museum is run by a non-profit organization.

Real history, in a strictly old-school setting
2015年4月 • 独自旅游
I attended a Saturday event on North Philly in the 1950s-70s. Lots of great archival film, and a panel of scholars. Fascinating -- lots of context, new information, and interesting analyses. If you like museums with rooms full of rows of glass cases, dark woodwork, and narrow hallways, this is the place for you. I say all that positively, as I'm a bit tired of sugar-coated, simplified, 3D video infotainment venues. Let's share some deep thoughts, people!
