Discover the science in your life. It doesn’t just begin in the laboratory, but in the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the earth beneath our feet. For centuries, curious men and women have worked to unlock and master the secrets of nature—the hows and whys of chemical change. Our exhibits, programs and collections tell the stories of the amazing successes, astonishing failures, and strange surprises behind the scientific discoveries that changed our world.
The Science History Institute is located at 315 Chestnut Street in the heart of Old City, Philadelphia's historic district. Open Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.. Admission is FREE. Visit Sciencehistory.org for more information.
