Attractions near the Wyndham Philadelphia Historic District
See the iconic Liberty Bell
A trip to Philadelphia isn’t complete without seeing the Liberty Bell, an iconic symbol of American independence. Visit this significant piece of history at the Liberty Bell Centre and learn about its origins, uses and current role.
Take some time to wander around the spacious centre, which is home to historic documents, graphic images and video presentations detailing facts, myths and stories about the Bell. You’ll also have the chance to see X-rays that give internal views of the Bell's famous crack and inner-workings. Other exhibits showcase how the Bell’s shape has been used for ordinary things such as ice cream moulds and wind chimes. Afterwards, make sure you visit the neighbouring Independence Hall for another fascinating lesson in American history.
Visit the Barnes Foundation
A major highlight of Philadelphia’s arts and culture scene is the Barnes Foundation. Spend a day walking through the galleries filled with fine collections of Post-Impressionist and early Modern paintings. You’ll encounter iconic works from artists such as Paul Cezanne, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Henri Rousseau, as well as America’s own Maurice Prendergast and Horace Pippin.
The Foundation also houses fascinating collections of Native American ceramics, jewellery and textiles. Designed by architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, the building itself is a sight to behold. Featuring a dramatic limestone exterior and majestic glass canopy, it provides the perfect photograph to remember your trip to Philadelphia.
