American Philosophical Society Museum

104 S 5th St

The American Philosophical Society, the oldest learned society in the United States, was founded in 1743 by Benjamin Franklin for the purpose of “promoting useful knowledge.”

The current exhibition at the APS is: Pursuit & Persistence: 300 Years of Women in Science, which explores how women scientists have overcome obstacles to achieve breakthroughs, make places for themselves in science, and help others along the way.

The exhibition invites visitors to meet women whose boundless curiosity impelled them to investigate the mysteries of the universe, from the stars glittering in the night sky down to the inner workings of cells in our bodies and the structures of the atoms that make up all matter.
