PAH Featured Site on Philly Open House Tours May 13-19

Philadelphia-Open-HouseGet up close and personal with Philadelphia’s architectural, historical and cultural landmarks – including Pennsylvania Hospital – and private homes during the Philadelphia Open House Tours – a week’s worth of behind-the-scenes and special-access tours. Organized by Philadelphia Hospitality, the Tours are designed to engage visitors and residents alike with some of the city’s best treasures.

More than a dozen special on-site tours are being offered throughout the week of May 13-19, including a special tour of PAH – the nation’s first hospital – Monday, May 13, from 10-11:30 am.

Open House visitors will be treated to access to art work typically unseen during normal tours.  Other tours will explore such famous Philly sites as the Philadelphia Navy Yard, the historic Wanamaker Organ at Macy’s Center City, and botanical treasures from the tomb of Tutankhamun at the Penn Museum. Also included: a wine tasting, architect and designer receptions in private homes and studios, a brewery tour, and more. All tours are led by knowledgeable experts, including historians, architects and designers.
