5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Well done exhibition. We came from Germany to see Marcel Duchamp! The permanent exhibition as well as the temporary one were amazing.

“Fantastic museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Never overcrowded, and when you pay you receive TWO days of entrance to all their museums. This is well worth the 20$ entrance fee.

Fantastic collection, with various special exhibits, of art from all eras.
Allow plenty of time and be sure to run up the Rocky Steps - absolute must for tourists.

“great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Although we did not have time to enter the museum we thoroughly enjoyed our experience on its grounds. The peripheral activities of a Saturday marathon were abuzz at the base of the "Rocky" steps. Numerous people were jogging up the steps in fine Rocky fashion. The building facade is lovely. The view down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway is beautiful. It really had a great atmosphere.
