Win a $50.00 gift certificate to get started on your next great Pennsylvania vacation! One winner will be selected at random from all correct entries on May 30th. Certificate may be used at any member campground.
The following photos represent three different Pennsylvania attractions for you to identify. Submit your answers for all three locations by May 30th, or you’ll be too late. Need help? We will add clues to this page between now and May 30th, so come back again if you’re not certain. You may also enter now and submit one or more corrected entries later, if you would like to change an answer after reading a clue. In order to win, you must correctly identify all three attractions. Still too difficult? We will have a second “I don’t know the answer” consolation drawing. Either way, only one entry will count per person for random drawings. If there is more than one correct entry, we will select one winner randomly from all correct entries. We will announce the two winners in our next E-Newsletter, following the drawing.
The winners in our previous contest are Jaynee Zeigler and Terese Westerkamm. The winners will be contacted by e-mail for their mailing addresses, and their prizes will be sent in the mail. Congratulations to our winners!
John T. Windrim’s original design for me was a completely square building surrounding a statue of my namesake which had yet to be built. I am a museum which was first located in my original building in 1825. I currently am located on my namesakes parkway. I was integrated in 1870, when Philadelphia teacher and activist Octavius Catto was admitted as one of my members. From September 2 to October 11, 1884, I hosted the International Electrical Exhibition of 1884, the first great electrical exposition in the United States. I am a museum located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and one of the oldest centers of science education and development in the United States, dating to 1824. What am I?
Most of my prisoners, held during the early years when I was built, were common petty criminals incarcerated for various robbery and theft charges (muggers, pickpockets, purse-snatchers, burglars, etc.) and the first-time offenders often served two years. I refined the revolutionary system of separate incarceration first pioneered at the Walnut Street Jail, which emphasized principles of reform rather than punishment. Notorious criminals such as bank robber Willie Sutton and Al Capone were held inside my innovative wagon wheel design. When I was erected, I was the largest and most expensive public structure ever constructed, quickly becoming a model for more than 300 prisons worldwide. I am currently a U.S. National Historic Landmark. I am open to the public as a museum for tours seven days a week.
I am dedicated to providing learning opportunities through play. I was the first of my kind in the nation whose target audience was families with children seven and younger. My employees have become experts in play and have had our programs for underserved families in the region nationally recognized. My mission is to enrich the lives of children by creating learning opportunities through play, enabling me to lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning and cultural awareness. If you come to play with me you will never hear, “Don’t touch that!”
