PartnersWagner Free Institute of ScienceWagner Free Institute of ScienceIn 1855, Philadelphian William Wagner established the Wagner Free Institute of Science as one of the earliest free adult science education programs in the nation. As an educational institution and natural history museum, the Wagner maintains library and museum collections assembled to teach science to the public. These collections now contain over 100,000 specimens, including mounted animals, fossils, rocks, minerals, insects, and shells. The Wagner also offers a range of educational programs, including college-level courses, scientific lecture series and symposia, and science lessons specifically designed for elementary students. With its extensive collections and educational programs, the Wagner Free Institute of Science has carried its legacy into the 21st century, continuing to make science education accessible and interesting for people of all ages.
