Location: East Terrace
Museum admission is Pay What You Wish
Ring in the holidays by joining us for a tree lighting on the East Terrace. More than 47 feet tall, the tree will sparkle down the Parkway with solar-powered lights. The lighting will be broadcast live on 6ABC (WPVI-TV).
Enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and learn about our holiday offerings, from caroling in the galleries and a Wednesday night ugly sweater party to trolley tours of the Fairmount Park historic houses. After the tree lighting, visitors are invited into the Museum, where the Great Stair Hall is newly decorated with evergreens, lights, and poinsettias. Don’t forget to explore the galleries and experience our world-renowned collections.
Thanks to a generous grant from the William Penn Foundation, Museum admission is Pay What You Wish on Wednesday Nights.
The seasonal decorations have been generously provided by Dougherty Electric, Inc.
