Road Trip Destination for Scientists: Chemical Heritage Foundation Museum—CHF in Chemical & Engineering News

February 11, 2013 - Philadelphia, PA


Everybody has their favorite vacation spot. Students flock to Fort Lauderdale for Spring Break. Country music fans visit Nashville at least once. So where should a chemical engineer go at least once? Well, how about a chemical-engineering museum? Sounds like a perfect spot for a road trip, but where can we find one? Here’s your answer!

The Chemical Heritage Foundation Museum, as well as Library and Center for Scholars! The Chemistry Museum run by the CHF is located at:

315 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106

According to the CHF website, the museum is a “one-of-a-kind cultural landmark, featuring a permanent exhibit, Making Modernity, and changing exhibits on a range of topics. Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the museum is free and open to the public.”

Sounds geeky and exciting! Definitely on my to-do list for the 2013 Spring Break—see you there?!
