On display: Philadelphia museums worth a visit

There’s a museum for every interest in Philly. No, really. Are you super into pizza culture? What about New Year’s Day parades? Or perhaps you’re fascinated by abnormal body parts preserved in jars of fluid? There’s an entire museum for that. The more traditional subjects of art, U.S. and world history, science, literature, and culture are covered, too, and covered well, including at the famed Philadelphia Museum of Art, widely considered one of the best museums in the country.
