A variety of exhibits inside and a wonderful view all around outside. An easy walk from most hotels and Love Park. So much more than the statue of Rocky that many tourists come to see. The Impressionist exhibit was especially worthwhile.

This art museum is as nice as the Art Institute in Chicago, which is high praise coming from me. It is easy to find, the floor plan is well laid out, and the art is spectacular.

We went to Philadelphia specifically for the Impressionist Art Exhibit and were not disappointed. I worked with their Accessibility Department to get special permission to leave and re-enter, an necessity because of disabilities of both me and my sister. Our needs were graciously met by the staff. The exhibit exceeded my hopes. We spent hours with the masterpieces of artists... More

My sister and I saw the Impressionist exhibit. The room with the Renoir's dancers took my breath away.

I've lived near Philadelphia my entire life; I visit the museum at least once a year and every time I am always able to find something new that I haven't seen before. This last time I went with friends from out of town and showed them around the museum. I paid extra to see the visiting impressionists exhibit. It was... More

Not a day trip museum. I have been a member for several years and even once I thought I've seen everything it still take more than a day to enjoy this museum.

Great museum with some famous painting by Van Gogh, Picasso and Dali, and a beautiful temporary impressionist exhibition.

This is not The Louvre or The Metropolitan In NYC, but the museum offers a handsome collection, the best in the post 1500 category. The display of paintings is delightfully interrupted by rooms (into which you may enter) furnished in the décor of the period. The cafeteria offers a fine assortment of foods at a reasonable price.
