Ryerss Museum and Library

Ryerss Museum and Library Think you're up on every museum in Philadelphia? Bet you haven't visited this hidden treasure in Fairmount Park!
(1)

Like most things Victorian, this place is very eclectic. From o***m pipes to stuffed alligators, the Ryerss collection gives visitors insight into a family who traveled the globe and brought back fascinating objects (particularly from the Orient) in order to enlighten Philadelphia citizen's of far away cultures. Live vicariously through the life of the housekeeper who married the wealthy bachelor,

became a widow eight months later, and then ventured off to exotic locales. Spend time picking out your favorite quirky item in the museum or peruse the collection of current best sellers, children's books, nonfiction tomes, Victorian reference works and magazines at the community lending library on the second floor.
