Geographical Society of Philadelphia

Explore with the Geographical Society of Philadelphia

Celebrate tradition and explore new frontiers… without leaving town!
Our 126th season kicks off with exciting new events you won’t want to miss. Two of the world’s most extreme explorers will allow us to have an intimate view of their worlds and death defying missions. They join the legacy of famous explorers like Theodore Roosevelt, John Glenn, Jacques Cousteau, and Robert E. Peary, who have previously enthralled Geographical Society of Philadelphia audiences.
