In addition to functioning as a working office building, Philadelphia's City Hall is a veritable museum of sculpture. 250 statues created by Alexander Milne Calder adorn the enormous building and its tower. In addition to the great statue of William Penn atop the tower, representations of Europeans, Native Americans, Africans and Asians also peer down from the office building.
