A World of Art and Wonder Just Two Hours Away

A World of Art and Wonder Just Two Hours Away

An amazing amount of art, history, science and other wonders is located just two hours away in Philadelphia, New York and Washington — and a peek at all of these treasures is just a click away. The following are the websites of some of the major museums and centers in those cities, which together probably constitute the largest collection of art, science and historical data in the country.

We tend to take most of these things for granted and, if we think about them at all, probably muse that "We'll go there one of these days. After all, they are not going anywhere." And neither are we. So this might be a good time to discover some of these treasures just a couple hours away. Check out some of their upcoming shows and exhibits at the websites below.
