The Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent, located just around the corner from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, is the gateway to Philadelphia history. The Museum's historic 1826 building and garden provide a unique Philadelphia setting for business meetings, receptions and social occasions. As one of the few green spaces in Center City, the Marian Mitchell Garden is available for private parties along with the exhibition galleries. Our preferred caterers offer distinctive menus customized for every event. When renting the Museum, clients may schedule a tour of the exhibitions or a presentation related to a special collection interest.
