Because it’s such a big city, Philadelphia has some great museums designed especially for kids to explore. The Franklin Institute Science Museum is probably at the top of most kids’ lists because it has tons of fun hands-on science activities, including a giant heart that kids can climb through. The museum also features an IMAX theater and planetarium. Kids who are into dinosaurs and natural sciences may prefer the Academy of Natural Science, which also has exhibits on geology and gems. Kids under the age of 7 may enjoy the Please Touch Museum, which has tons of hands-on exhibits just for preschoolers and early elementary kids.

Child with bearPhiladelphia has some great places to see animals, including the Philadelphia Zoo, which was the first in the nation. Kids who love the water will enjoy a trip across the river to Adventure Aquarium in Camden, New Jersey, where they can see sharks, hippos, and tons of fish. For a more laid-back nature excursion, kids may enjoy heading to Longwood Gardens, which has an indoor garden with fun features designed especially for children to explore.

Kids who love sports have plenty of options for professional and college sporting events in Philadelphia. Of course, the Eagles’ football games are a huge attraction, and there’s nothing like going to a Phillies’ game and enjoying some hot dogs and nachos on a summer evening. Other sports teams to check out include the Wings, who play lacrosse, the Philadelphia Soul, who play arena football, and the KiXX, who play indoor soccer.

Bring Some Excitement Into The Life Of A Philadelphia Child

Some of the most exciting amusement parks in the area are just outside of Philadelphia, but a trip for a child with a critical illness​ can still be made to happen when you donate your car to Wheels For Wishes. Sesame Place, in Langhorne, Penn., is a favorite for the young crowd who will love getting to see their favorite characters from Sesame Street, go on rides, and see live performances and parades. Dorney Park in Allentown, Penn., is a classic amusement park with all of the rides kids adore. For hot summer days, Clementon Park & Splash World, which is just across the river in New Jersey, has tons of thrilling rides.

Philadelphia is a city with a lot of history, and also with a ton of fun activities that kids can do, whether they’re related to history or not. Your car donation can make a difference. In addition to benefiting kids who otherwise may not be able to go on these fun outings, you will, of course, get a receipt to claim the car donation tax deduction if you itemize deductions on your taxes next year.
