Join the Mütter Museum and Hidden City Philadelphia for a virtual tour of Brewerytown in North Philadelphia that focuses on the German American community a century ago. We’ll learn about breweries, factories, rowhouses, and churches as we explore life before, during, and after the influenza pandemic that killed more than 17,500 Philadelphians in 1918–19.
