Overview
More
Set within a lively urban neighborhood, commanding a spectacular view of Fairmount Park, and just across the street from the main Museum building, the Perelman Building galleries and study centers showcase some of the Museum's most comprehensive, colorful, and cutting-edge collections. The new spaces offer a variety of other wonderful new amenities. Among them are a library open to the public and offering a wealth of resources, including ever-changing displays of rare books, precious documents, and graphic arts; a café overlooking a landscaped terrace; a new bookstore; a soaring skylit walkway; and a succession of other spaces in which to stroll, linger, and explore the visual arts.

I've been to many countries, and this museum is one of the best I've seen. What sets it apart is the vignetting of rooms and other building parts that show how people lived. The weapons and armor collection is wonderful, as is the collection of...More

try art after five on friday nights. Amazing music/dance in the beautiful grand hall with accompanying food/beverage. After go see the art and enjoy the quieter(generally) emptier galleries.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art goes well beyond being the backdrop for the Rocky movies, while it was fun and entertaining remember these, the inside is what really makes it a world class location.

The museum was closed the day we visited but we were not disappointed. The views of Fairmount Park were beautiful and watching everyone run up the steps attempting their own Rocky moment was fun to see. Take time to walk around the area. Even with...More

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is really beautiful and very well organized : you can choose an epoch, a kind of artists. The works are well disposed and it's easy for you to decide on what you want to see.

Have to climb the steps like Rocky and stand in his spot. The waterfall is beautiful in the front. We didn’t tour the museum but grounds are beautiful. Parking is free so don’t pay anyone.
