The Independence Seaport Museum’s latest exhibit invites guests to explore the archaeological discoveries of Philadelphia’s waterfront.
On view September 21 through February 2013 in the museum’s second floor Community Gallery, Digging the City will bring to life the experiences of our waterfront’s historic inhabitants by presenting a collection of objects uncovered during the construction of I-95.
Since Native American settlements and historic alleys, streets and wharves are still buried below the open spaces of adjacent to I-95, Digging the City presents a unique snapshot of how the area evolved over time, from its earliest residents through the city’s industrial age.
The exhibit is free with museum admission. For more info, click here.
Insider tip: Extended Summer Hours are in effect through October 6, which means the Seaport Museum is open until 7 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
