Title: Parkway Museums Brochure recto - side with walking map of museums
Historic Street Address:
Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Print and Picture Collection
This is the recto-side of an old tourism brochure highlighting the museums and the Central Library on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The date of this document is unknown, but it pre-dates the moving of The Barnes Foundation from Lower Merion to the Parkway in 2012; also, the Please Touch Museum relocated in 2008 to Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park--this would place the brochure's publication date between 1983-2008 (best guess, ca. 1993). Nevertheless, it illustrates the continuing museum-rich attraction of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
