2018 is the 275th anniversary of the American Philosophical Society. In recognition of this event, the APS Museum has curated this special exhibition. It tells the story of the APS, focusing on the work of its elected Members and using materials from the Society’s renowned collections—from Benjamin Franklin’s library chair to Neil Armstrong’s signed copy of the moon landing transcript.
