- The Academy of Natural Sciences is Philadelphia's natural history museum, founded in 1812. The Academy offers entertainment for children and adults, with information and live animals that instruct and entertain all visitors. The dinosaur hall, located right near the entrance to the museum, is its most famous draw. The large motorized skeletons will awe and amaze. The Academy often has fascinating temporary exhibitions as well, so be sure to visit the website before you plan your trip.
