One of the finest and richest art collection I have ever seen. It's a celebration for art lovers. The new museum preserves the nature of the old place with modern facilities.

Great place. Although it looked way bigger from outside, it has a perfect size for one-time visitors. The collections are very well organized. The European paintings are amazing! Renoir, Monet....

If you are the type of person who likes to read about everything, plan on being there awhile. We generally like to look for specific painting... More

This museum is free with the Philly pass. It has every type of art you can imagine. This is the museum that has the Rocky statue and famed stairs.
