What people are saying:

I missed the great opportunity to learn and see portraits from another museum docent because it was closed on Monday and Tuesday. I thought it was an attractive exquisite building, and instead it was an art museum-style house. Checked the exact dates and time of its opening online and I added it to my next must-see list for my trip to Philadelphia. My review will be given when I get home and study it.

    I entered this historical location for a quick tour.

    I took a quick self-guided tour of the bank. It was free and the rangers were friendly. I saw many portraits of the Founding Fathers. There is a lot of history which occurred within this area.

    Great Collection, rather sterile interpretation
