It’s no secret that Philly is home to some amazing museums, but don’t overlook the burbs. There are just as many treasures to explore outside the city limits - and SEPTA can take you to see it all. Even better? Some museum offer discounted admission to SEPTA riders, which will make you feel twice as smart after your visit.

The Art of Rube Goldberg

National Museum of American Jewish History

Now thru January 21, 2019 see the first comprehensive retrospective exhibition of Rube Goldberg’s work since the Smithsonian’s 1970 celebration of the artist. The Art of Rube Goldberg explores his varied career—from his earliest published works and iconic Rube Goldberg machine invention drawings, to his Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoons. And more. Throughout his long career, Rube Goldberg (1883–1970) chronicled almost every salient aspect of modern American life. His work touched on everything from fashion and sports to gender, politics, and international affairs. This exhibition explores the artistry and wit that made Rube Goldberg one of the twentieth century’s most celebrated and enduring cartoonists—and a household name. So easy to get to the NMAJH on SEPTA. Hop the Market-Frankford Line to 5th Street/Independence Hall or Routes 17, 33, 38, 44, or 57.
