This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Long before the grand Benjamin Franklin Parkway was built, the Academy of Natural Sciences was drawing tourists to the site with the first dinosaur skeleton ever displayed. As Philadelphia celebrates the centennial of our version of the Champs-Élysées, the Academy presents A Peek at the Past, A Look at the Future, an intimate exhibit that illustrates a century of progress at the parkway’s first cultural institution and offers a glimpse of our future focus. Experience the dramatic changes to the museum’s architecture and exhibitions; explore scientific field expeditions; discover famous Academy members through the years, and see where the next century will take us.
