I should start out by saying that I love museums, even the bad ones. But the Philadelphia Museum of Art ranks among the best curated museums I've been to in a long time. The exhibits are lovely and really draw in guests, while everything is well labeled (can't stand it when I can't find the name of an artist or... More

We visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art on a recent trip to Philly. It is as the name states, a museum. If you are interested in art, sculpture and a few other older articles then this is the place to go in Philly. I have little to compare the museum to other than a trip to the British Museum in...

A Must-See Museum in Philadelphia! It has fabulous collections of art. We live outside of Philadelphia and never tire of visiting. The Asian collections are phenomenal. This museum ranks high with all major city museums.

That's a museum worth visiting both for locals and from visitors. Visitors - for its massive and well organized collection of paintings, with many unique masterpieces. Locals - for constant and fascinating exhibitions (right now Impressionist gallery). My personal favorites are sections of medieval and oriental arts, both organized in interiors and decors of proper time period (Hindu temple, Chinese... More

This is a great museum to visit! I was surprised by the amount of Impressionistic Art they have on regular display. The museum is large enough to house a great variety, without being so big that you feel lost or overwhelmed. I have eaten at the cafe and restaurant and have always been pleased with both. One of the very... More

My brother is a member of the museum. It is worth going to even if it is not in the best section of the city. Saw a great exhibit of the artist, Frida Kahlo.

One of the best museums in the country. I have been a member for many years and never tire of visiting. Special exhibits are well curated and staff is always helpful. Lunch in the main restaurant is good and very convenient. Make reservations in advance. Museum Shop is great for gifts with a wide assortment of merchandise. Parking in the... More

There is an Impressionist exhibit going on now, which is excellent!! It has an audio tour and is well done. The rest of the museum has a variety of artwork and walking through the galleries is a relaxing and thought-provoking experience.
