I have been at Temple University for many years and never knew this jewel of a museum was within walking distance of our university. I have taken a few friends to this museum. They are always stunned that as Philadelphians they didn't know this museum existed! It is like stepping back in time. A great museum for children, but the adults will learn a lot as well. Seeing the lecture hall is like stepping back in time. I highly recommend this museum to everyone.
