In fairness, I flown four times in the last year to/from FLL and experienced delays on 3 flights due to weather, including a diversion to TPA. You-know-what happens at every airport and airline at some point. Relax and enjoy your trip!
The SkyClub pass is $59 and is noted as a "single" visit. In the past it would permit visits to any DL club city you flew through on the same day, but that may have changed due to overcrowding. You can purchase a day pass only at a Club desk so worth to check it in FLL, but frankly I'd save my $ and simply visit several concourses using the tram. E in the late afternoon is wide-body heaven. Plenty of food and beverage choices in every concourse. The PHL Club is small, no windows or views and not worth the visit.
The DL Museum is open daily 10AM-4PM.
Do not exit security because evening can be a busy period for clearing security and you'll notice quickly the concourses are crowded and very busy. It is what makes ATL the dynamic airport it is so just take it all in & enjoy the whole travel experience.
Unless you have arrangements for pick up with friends or family, there is rail service between PHL Airport and Center City Philly.
Look at "www.septa.org" for schedules to the city and suburban locations. Public transit in Philly includes, buses, trolley's, subways and the Regional Rail network noted that serves the airport. Easy to get around and inexpensive.
If sightseeing a great Hop On Hop Off double decker bus tour is available near Independence Mall for a comprehensive 90 minute or so tour of Philly. Well worth the price to get a close view of this historic city. The new American Revolution Museum opens this week.
Have a fun and safe trip.
P.S. A must. A Philly Cheesesteak during your visit. If possible, hit Geno's as the iconic landmark Cheesesteak place.

On a somewhat related note, I have an upgrade offer from Delta. $43 gets me Comfort+ on both my flights. I don't mind paying the money, but is it really worth it? I read their description of the product on their website, but how is it in reality?
