Visiting the PMA always feels like a chance to catch up with an old friend. Loved the Arts of Korea.
I love this museum and visit it every time I am in Philly. It doesn't matter where your interest lies, you will find something that really blows your socks off. The current Korean exhibition is very well done and gives great insight into the royal culture and lifestyle at that time.

Of course, you can take a quick jog up the steps if you want a quick workout, or enjoy a... More
I was with a large group and had a really nice time visiting all of the museum. I especially enjoyed the beautiful huge paintings on the American side. The Korean display was very nice but not as awe inspiring to me. Beautiful place and lots of steps. lol
The Philadelphia Museum of Art has a wonderful collection and there truly is something for everyone. So many times in the past I had visited the first few galleries of paintings without venturing to other parts of the museum.
