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 currently closed due to "Safer at Home" restrictions. When we are not closed, we are open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 12-5pm. Admission is always free, and visitors are required to schedule a visit through our online booking platform.

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.

COVID-19 Update

In accordance with the new "Safer at Home" restrictions announced by city government and health officials, Slought will close to visitors on Friday, November 20, 2020.

We are committed to the health and well-being of our publics and support efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic in our city. We look forward to welcoming you again to Slought in the new year.
