Free Museum Days: Arch Street Meeting House

Located in the heart of Old City, Philadelphia, Arch Street Meeting House (ASMH) is a museum, National Historic Landmark, and active Quaker place of worship. Constructed in 1804 on two acres of land deeded by Pennsylvania’s Quaker founder, William Penn, ASMH has had an estimated 20,000 burials occur on its historic grounds. Early Abolitionists, suffragists, civil rights leaders, and LGBTQ+ organizers found a home at ASMH. Today, visitors of all kinds gather at the meetinghouse for exploration, events, and a sense of community.

Step inside this active Quaker meeting house to learn more about the stories of the people, the building, and the grounds of Arch Street Meeting House.

On June 29th, Arch Street Meeting House Preservation Trust (ASMHPT) is celebrating the 400th birthday anniversary of George Fox, Quakerism’s co-founder. This family-friendly FREE event will have birthday cake, crafts, historical interpreters (you might meet William & Hannah Penn themselves!), dunk tanks, food trucks, Weckerly’s ice cream, and more.
