The Philadelphia Museum of Art is a must see destination if you are visiting Philadelphia. The standing exhibits are great and special exhibitions by Cezanne and Dali among others have been stunning.

One of the best things about this world-class museum is the way its art is displayed in "rooms" such as you might see in one of England's great houses. This gives the paintings a context where they can be displayed as the painters might have intended. That it is free on Sundays is an additional bonus.

you like art go here. If you don't know much about art go here. If you don't know the difference between a Matisse and a Picasso go here. If you do know the difference between Mezzotint and Intaglio go here. If you can stare at 2 basketballs in an aquarium of water and debate what the artist is trying to... More
