A showcase of the everyday ingenuity and extraordinary intellect of the United States' first scientists. – In Short
For more than two centuries now, the APS has funded scientific research and archived pivotal artifacts and manuscripts, including a first edition copy of Darwin's Origin of the Species and experimental electrical instruments. Archives are open to scholars, and the fascinating self-guided exhibitions featured in Philosophical Hall should be a stop on any tour of Independence Mall.
