Philadelphia Academy of Music Tours

Philadelphia Academy of Music
Philadelphia is home to plenty of old-school American history, and the roots of its local music scene run deep, too. Travelers in search of an elegant establishment showcasing some of the best international talent will find it all at the Academy of Music. 

This unassuming building in the heart of Philadelphia is actually the nation’s oldest continually operational opera house. Its stunning interior houses a 5,000-pound chandelier and is modeled after Milan’s La Scala Opera House. In addition to being a destination for travelers seeking live, classical entertainment, the Academy of Music is a worthy stop for history buffs as well. The National Historic Landmark is the site where President Ulysses S. Grant was nominated for his second term and it’s the site where Martha Graham first performed “The Rite of Spring”. Visitors who arrive during the month of January can watch the Philadelphia Orchestra perform their anniversary concert, which has occurred each year for more than a century.

Practical Info

The Academy of Music is located at 240 S Broad Street near the 12-13th and Locust station. One-hour tours are available by reservation and every Christmas the Pennsylvania Ballet performs the Nutcracker here.
Address: 240 S Broad Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19102, USA
