Woodmere Art Museum is a wonderful museum that tells the story of Philly's artists and their art. Currently Biblical Art is displayed in honor of the Pope's visit to Philadelphia. Also on exhibit are works by Raymond Theel, who painted impressionistic landscapes of Jarretown, PA, his hometown. They really support children and have a room where their art is displayed... More

Lovely museum that exhibits local artists from Philadelphia on a rotating basis. On Friday nights, catch a jazz concert surrounded by art. Classical Sundays offers classical music concerts. Great giftshop, not to be missed! Lots of free parking and free Sunday admission.

The Woodmere is a great little museum in Chestnut Hill, PA, just north of the center city. The rotating exhibits are interesting and eclectic. We have visited a couple times as a family and have truly enjoyed each visit. The smaller size of the museum make it easy to do in a couple hours so you don't feel overwhelmed or... More

My wife and I visited this lovely museum today just outside Chestnut Hill and were impressed with the exhibits and fine service. It is small enough to be personal and large enough to be worthy of a visit! There is plenty of on site parking, free admission on Sunday's, Jazz on Fridays and a well stocked gift shop. Visit them...

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

Sundays are free at Woodmere, located about 20 minutes from center city on the fringes of Fairmount Park. Currently on display are many works by women and some fine Hudson River School pieces. The museum began in a home with wonderful architectural features and stained glass, and a clean contemporary rotunda was added. This is not one of those huge... 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
