Plan Your Visit

Slought is located at 4017 Walnut Street in West Philadelphia, on the edge of the University of Pennsylvania campus. We are housed in a historic Deco/Beaux-Arts bank building from 1924. Our quiet storefront borders 40th Street, a "linear mile" that runs from Walnut to Westminster Streets. Our programs respond to the uneven distribution of economy, community and social trust that surrounds us.

Admission and Hours

Our galleries are open to the general public from Tuesday to Friday, 12-5pm. Admission is free and no reservation is required. We look forward to seeing you!

Visitors are expected to follow our COVID-19 Social Contract, which includes a vaccination requirement, wearing a face-covering at all times, sanitizing hands, and refraining from visiting if feeling unwell. Free PPE will be provided if needed.

These guidelines follow recommendations set forth by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, City of Philadelphia, and University of Pennsylvania. They are regularly updated in accordance with evolving safety protocols at local and national levels. We close for all local and national holidays, university recesses, and between installations.

Group Reservations

Are you visiting as a class or large group? Please schedule a reservation through Eventbrite at least one day prior to arrival.
