Architecture Tours

All tours are produced and managed by our friends at the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about tours, please contact the Preservation Alliance directly.

The Center has partnered with the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia to provide tours of Philadelphia's architecture and built environment.

  • Tours are led by experienced volunteer guides from a wide range of backgrounds
  • There are 20 different tours available to the public, with dozens more available for private groups. For descriptions of available tours, visit: Preservation Alliance Tour Descriptions
  • Because Preservation Alliance tours cover so many diverse areas of the city, each tour meets at a different location. Check the listing of each tour for meeting locations.

Tours are offered May-October and run ~1.5 - 2 hours each.
Special tours are occasionally offered between November-April.
View a full schedule of upcoming tours on the Preservation Alliance's TicketLeap page.

  • 10:00 AM | Saturdays
  • 2:00 PM | Sundays

Purchase tickets online at the Preservation Alliance's TicketLeap page, or go to the designated tour meeting place and pay your tour guide (cash/check payable to: Preservation Alliance).

Tours are limited to 25 people; people with tickets get priority. Please print tickets purchased online when possible.
