Centennial Innovations gives life to this incredible model, asking visitors the same questions that drove the world’s greatest inventors, thinkers and dreamers to Memorial Hall in 1876:
-Why change the world?
-And if you could change the world…
-What would you invent?
-Who would you become?
-What would a new world look like?
Major support for Centennial Innovations has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Hess Foundation, The Anderson Family Foundation, and the City of Philadelphia with special thanks to Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr. Funding for Centennial Innovations is also supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC), a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
