Walking Tours of Philadelphia

Course Type: 
Adult Education

Art isn’t just in museums…it's part of our everyday lives.

Lace up your walking shoes and explore public sculpture, fountains, and architecture on one of our walking tours. Or join us for an informative and thought provoking talk or course on select topics offered throughout the region. These events are appropriate for everyone.  

What role do public fountains play in the life of a city like Philadelphia? How can we understand the design and function of city architecture? How do we experience public sculptures? These and other important issues are addressed on our two-hour walking tours offered throughout the year. Walking Tours of Philadelphia are appropriate for everyone, with most requiring a modest amount of exertion.
