Discover exhibit halls in Philadelphia

Planning an exhibition for world famous artists visiting the city? Or maybe you have a collection of fine art you want to share? Exhibition halls are the best venues to hold your event at. They are spacious venues with room for the audience to freely explore each of the subjects on display. Exhibition halls have lighting that is controlled with care to keep attention fixed on each subject. Not to mention supporting amenities like stands, presentation areas, and climate control.
As a major American city, Philadelphia hosts exhibitions year-round. The city's museums, art galleries, event venues, and convention centers attract painters, technology experts, historians, and other people looking to share their work as well as patrons of the arts and sciences eager to learn more about it! So what kind of venues should we be looking at when planning an exhibition in Philadelphia?

How to plan an exhibition in Philadelphia

Exhibition spaces in Philadelphia should be chosen with care. Consider how people will flow through the space as they enter it. Are there traffic cross sections where you could put booths for maximum engagement? Which exhibitions will be near the front entrance, where people are at their freshest? How far are bathrooms, water fountains, concessions, and other amenities going to be from the exhibition itself?
Parking is also a big deal for large exhibitions. For a smaller show, street parking may be enough. If you're expecting a huge number of attendees, though, parking on site is a better idea.

The best places to host an exhibition in Philadelphia

Some of the most popular places to host an exhibition include art galleries, museums, and community centers. These venues have spaces dedicated to showcasing works of art, science, history, or items of local importance. They are also fixtures of the community, making them natural gathering places due to their familiarity. If you're holding an intimate exhibition, you can easily turn a hotel conference room, church meeting room, loft space, or other space into an exhibition hall.
When holding a sculpture or photo exhibition in Philadelphia, the lighting is the most important element. Without good sources of artificial light, people will struggle to view what's on display. Floor or wall mounted sources work best here. And as people's attention will be on the art, the venue's overall appearance isn't as important. It will be transformed by the presence of your exhibition. Even the blank walls of a loft or warehouse are massively improved by the photography hanging on its walls!
