New for 2019 at Philly Tourist Sites

Three local cultural venues will unveil large, new projects in 2019.




The Fledgling Trail at the John James Audubon Center for Art and Conservation in Mill Grove in Audubon, PA, will allow kids to mimic the life stages of birds, from egg to first flight.

It’s good that not everything is new on Jan. 1, otherwise we’d have nothing to look forward to for the rest of the year.

There are three cultural institutions in our area that will unveil significant improvements and expansions in 2019.

Mark your calendars for:

Spring/Summer

Independence Visitor Center

Independence Visitor Center in Philadelphia will install a 42-foot digital Philly Welcome Wall that visitors can explore through a touchscreen. It is part of a $15 million improvement project that already includes an expanded gift shop with Philadelphia-themed goodies and a wrap-around terrace on the second floor.

 

June/July

 

John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove in Audubon, PA will become the John James Audubon Center for Art and Conservation in Mill Grove this summer when it opens a $16 million space for exhibits, two art galleries and an auditorium. There will also be a Fledgling Trail, an outdoor exhibit where kids can mimic the life stages of birds from egg to first flight.

November

Penn MuseumPenn Museum in Philadelphia will open its restored Mexico and Central America Gallery and African Galleries with new interpretive displays, along with a renovated 618-seat Harrison Auditorium and a revived Main Entrance Hall. The project, which includes the new Middle East Galleries that opened in the spring, will also improve accessibility with two new elevators.
