CHF joins over 40 Old City Philadelphia museums, galleries, and shops in hosting an open house the first Friday evening of every month. In addition to extended gallery hours, each month’s event features guest speakers and hands-on activities that bring the exhibits to life.
First Fridays are free and open to the public; no registration required!
Upcoming First Friday Events
