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.
