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 by appointment only from Tuesday to Friday, 12-5pm. Admission is free. Our re-opening plans follow guidelines set forth by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, City of Philadelphia, and University of Pennsylvania. We will adapt our reopening plan in accordance with changes to safety protocols at the city, state, and university level.

Visitors are required to schedule a visit through Eventbrite at least one hour prior to arrival. Visitation will be limited to 3 groups at a time. All visitors are required to follow our COVID-19 Social Contract, which entails wearing a face-covering, sanitizing hands, and refraining from visiting if feeling unwell. Free PPE will be provided if needed.

Schedule a Visit


We close for all holidays, university recesses, and installations. For public transportation, use the 21 bus or the Market-Frankford Subway Line to 40th. Street parking is available as well as garage parking for a fee.
