view web site ›'s insider take:

You could go just for the buildings on the southeastern edge of the University of Pennsylvania campus: The first was completed in 1899 and adorned with red-brick-and-white-marble walls topped by terra-cotta tile, Tiffany Glass floral and faunal mosaics, and sculpture by Alexander Calder père (father of the mobilemaker and son of the man who sculpted the William Penn statue atop City Hall). But inside, the Guastavino domes are their own reward, and the "Worlds Intertwined" exhibit of Greek, Roman, and Etruscan artifacts and the not-to-be-missed Egyptian Galleries add up to a stunning collection of ancient civilizations.

Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10 am to 4:30 pm, Sundays 1 pm to 5 pm. Only select galleries are open on Sunday and in summer.
