Explore with the Geographical Society of Philadelphia

Celebrate tradition and explore new frontiers… without leaving town!
We kick off our 127th season with renowned photographer, Steve McCurry, whose compelling and iconic photos have graced the cover of National Geographic.  Events in our Marco Polo Networking Nights, Travel Junkies, and Border Crossings series span the calendar, and invite GEO members and audiences to see and experience the world in new ways.  GEO has hosted such singular explorers as Theodore Roosevelt, John Glenn, Jacques Cousteau, and Robert E. Peary, all of whom have previously enthralled our audiences.  The 127th season will not disappoint!!  Become a member to support the legacy of one of Philadelphia’s oldest and most-prestigious organizations.
