The PMA is a nice size, not overwhelming, with something for everyone. There is wonderful world class art in the form of paintings, whole rooms that have been reassembled intact from major residences so you can see what they really looked like, a fun collection of armor, fabulous fabrics from past centuries and a huge Calder mobile hanging in the...

Had to visit here in our trip to Philadelphia. Went first just to find where it was and then went on a Sunday morning on a morning run. Ran up the steps as per Rocky and it does give a great view over Philly .

If you're in Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is a great place to go. A truly beautiful place - and it's also worth checking out Boathouse Row while there.

Didnt go inside. Just ran up the steps like Rocky and took some videos and photos. There were other tourists doing the same too. This was my lifelong dream, so I rated it excellent!

The collections are amazing. The have all the great masters. I love Monet and they had a dozen of his works. But my favorite was "Sunflowers" by Vincent van Gogh. I was in London in May and hoped to see it at the National Gallery but it was on loan. So I was very pleased to find it in Philadelphia.... More

This is a must-see if you are in Philly. Nothing more to be said. The building is stunning and the exhibits are phenomenal.

We went to visit due to the Rocky link, VEry impressive walking up towards the museum, great parkway and statues. My fiance ran up the steps, there arent as many as you think and the view from the top is amazing of the Philly skyline. The museum building is very impressive from the outside. We walked around to the back... More

I loved the museum inside and out BUT I did not allow enough time!!! The diversity of the art is wonderful. It reminds you that each culture/civilization had wonderful talent to express various insights of life. Art is also not limited to a canvas, it comes out in furnishings, textures, sculptures and stones.

there is so much to see that we had to return a second day! Plan a full day or two half days to just scratch the surface. Philadelphia is an art lovers ideal destination.

This is one of the best museums I've ever been through! I went on a Friday night when they are open late with music and cocktails, but the ticket purchase also gave admission the next day to not only return to this museum but also visit the Rodin museum down the street and a couple of others. The first floor... More
