Philadelphia Area
Steady Through Centuries
Some things, thankfully, never change. Through the years, the Amish in southeastern Pennsylvania have kept steady to their faith, and they have carved a unique life for themselves. Visitors get to see how these people have maintained a way of living for hundreds of years. Take a side trip to the Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum in Lancaster, about 80 miles west of Philadelphia. At this more than 100-acre, living history village, visitors can step into historic buildings and exhibits. ✱ Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum (717) 581-0431 www.landisvalley museum.org

Like those attractions, The Franklin Institute dramatically connects the past to the present. Part museum, part interactive science exhibit and part tribute to a Founding Father, The Franklin Institute ties the genius of Ben Franklin to today’s inventions. Visitors can walk through a giant model of the human heart in the Giant Heart: A Health Interactive Experience. A pulse vibrates through the 5,000-square-foot room as visitors explore the structure and function of the heart. The exhibit also includes a recreation of an open-heart surgery.
