There really is something here for everyone. We spent a good 6 hours walking around and didn't see everything. Really enjoyed all of the artwork and how it was organized chronologically. My son and I enjoyed the armor and weapons section. The Japanese tea house and Chinese hall were something to see. Didn't venture outside because of the freezing cold.

We had a limited amount of time to spend in Philadelphia so we wanted to maximize our time. Most museums close at five, but this one was open till 8:45 p.m. and it was a great way to experience the museum - less people and the the skyline view at night was beautiful. Plus, there was a dance troupe performing... More

We didn't go into the museum but ran up the "Rocky Steps" - definitely worth the walk over to this location!

The museum from the outside is magnificent and stands out along Philadelphias amazing waterfront. The collection itself was split into antiquities to the left as you enter and contemporary and modern to the right, with other rooms that host special exhibitions. The collection of paintings was formidable, with numerous paintings that would be recognised by art experts and novices alike.... More

I always love going to the art museum of Philadelphia, PA. The armor room is so much fun to explore. It is astonishing to see how much smaller people were then. The special art shows they bring in are usually what prompts me to head back these days, but all the permanent collections are worth seeing time and time again.

Rocky made the steps famous, but the interior is all its own. The Impressionists are my favorite, but anyone who enjoys any aspect of art will be fulfilled. The architecture is impressive both inside and out. The Calder mobile hanging in the middle of the museum typifies the high quality displayed throughout. The cafe is bright with sunlight and the...
