**Special Tour** The Evolution of Philadelphia's 30th Street Station

Philadelphia is the home of one of the last remaining grand train stations in America, the iconic 30th Street Station now known as William H. Gray III 30th Street Station. This monumental edifice, built between 1929-1933, has been faithfully restored over the decades to honor the original Neoclassical exterior and the spectacular Arts Deco touches inside. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, it features important sculptures, 95-ft. tall ceilings, and amazing interior ornamentation. Come tour this incredible station and learn its history and some of its secrets, which features a main concourse the length of two football fields and is the 3rd busiest in the country.

Meet inside at the Angel Statue near the East Entrance of 30th Street Station (2955 Market Street).
