Set along the Schuylkill River, the historical Fairmount Water Works features high-tech exhibits where families can soak up lessons on how, put simply, water works. Visit on Science Saturdays for weekly experiments & projects, or watch Movie Matinees on Sundays, when environmental titles range from An Inconvenient Truth to Happy Feet.

KIDBIT: Kids can gain eco-awareness at Pollutionopolis, marvel at the ability to ‘make it rain’ & even pretend to pilot a helicopter up the River.
