“amazing artwork!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

we didn't get to see the entire museum - it's way larger than it looks and the artwork is just stunning!

“Rocky!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We did not get to go in the museum of art, but did run up the stairs like Rocky did in the movie. Also there are footprints and a Rocky statue that is very popular.

“Great exhibits from ancient sites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Antiquities including entire rooms from different parts of the world was a highlight. Some amazing things to see, but take some time to really look. Can feel overwhelming because the collection is so large. Many Monet paintings with just a few VanGoghs, Beautiful building.

“A true gem of a museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A morning at the Philadelphia Museum of Art is on of our favorite family attractions. My boys, ages 8 and 10 love the armor and each have favorite paintings to look at. The museum is easy to navigate but has a wealth of incredibly impressive art and a variety of different rooms, temples, areas that make you feel like you've taken an exotic trip. The staff are friendly and helpful, the cafe serves decent food and in general the Museum makes for an amazing outing! I highly recommend a visit for families with kids of all ages!

Second art museum that I have seen and found it easy to get lost in the collections. I was impressed with the different collections.
