The bustling heart of West Philadelphia and academic epicenter of the entire region, University City gets its name for having two of the largest and most influential institutions in town: University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University.
These collegiate giants, sub-anchored by nationally renowned medical hubs, serve multiple disciplines. The enclave also boasts a magnetic individuality fueled by youthful innovation and an unshakeable commitment to artistic and cultural exploration.
Transforming understanding of the human experience. A million objects — including art and artifacts from around the globe — are housed at the Penn Museum, one of the world’s finest archaeological and anthropological museums. From stone tools and household items to architectural monuments and rare art objects, the museum illustrates the story of humanity’s history and achievements. With materials from ancient Egypt, Asia, Mesopotamia, the Americas and ancient Greece and Italy, the Penn Museum explores the world — all under one roof.
Museum introducing provocative contemporary artists for more than 40 years. Ever since Andy Warhol and his entourage caused a near-riot here in 1965, the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) has been shaking up the city with shows revealing the hottest and coolest trends in contemporary art. The ICA has led the way with the first-ever museum shows of Warhol, Laurie Anderson, Agnes Martin, Robert Indiana and other influential artists. The wide-open spaces and ultra-high ceilings of its building on the Penn campus, opened in 1990, allow plenty of room for artists to let loose with multimedia installations that climb, hang or scatter through the galleries. Past shows have looked at fashion icon Rudi Gernreich, bad-girl painter Lisa Yuskavage, and the young collaborative group Space 1026.
Fresh air and fresh fare. The Porch at 30th Street Station offers greenery, seating, food-and-drink options and a great location to hang alfresco. Located on the south side of 30th Street Station, The Porch features lunch from rotating food trucks, pop-up performances, lush landscaping, outdoor drinks in warmer weather and plenty of places to relax. Adjacent to the third busiest train station in the country, between two magnificent historic buildings and within a short walk of over 16,000 jobs, The Porch is a key gateway to the region. Once a congested parking lane and bland, barren sidewalk, when University City District debuted The Porch in November 2011, it quickly became an animated public place in Philadelphia.
Historic home of Penn football.In operation since before the turn of the 20th century, Franklin Field is the University of Pennsylvania’s historic football stadium. The annual international Penn Relays, the oldest organized relay competition in the U.S. (it began in 1895), is held here every April. The Relays bring together the best track and field athletes from high schools and colleges worldwide. Franklin Field is the oldest two-tiered stadium in the country with a seating capacity of 52,593. The historic field is the former home of Super Bowl LII champs the Philadelphia Eagles and was also host to some of the very first Army-Navy games between 1899 and 1935.
