The Woodmere is a smallish art museum in an late 19th C home. I thought it was good size to offer some variety but avoid museum fatigue. A lot of the space is given to changing exhibitions. In the gallery space devoted to the permanent collection are some lovely statues and an excellent bust of Abraham Lincoln, as well as... More

This little museum is a real jewel--both the permanent collection and special exhibits. Never a lot of people there, always room and time to take in the art. Also features local school children's art, which is really great. The house itself is interesting and historical and worth seeing. Also have special events that are lovely. The Schoefield exhibit was huge--surprised... More

We read about the Woodmere Art Museum in a Philadelphia Inquirer article that featured the Philip Jamison watercolors, so we decided to visit the Woodmere. Unfortunately, as interesting as they were, the watercolors comprised only one small room of the museum. We weren't that keen on the new acquisitions. The architecture of the building itself is interesting, including the chandelier... More

Went to Woodmeer for Friday nite jazz series. I was apprehensive at first but was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the music, the uniqueness of the art & the fine hospitality. Check it out on Friday evenings @ 6🎶
