You definitely need a full day to try to view everything that this museum has to offer. I would recommend checking the postcard collection in the gift shop before you begin, so that you know which paintings you don't want to miss. I didn't follow...More
This Museum has 2 floors with extending wings; in 3 hours we only covered one floor and the special exhibit on Fashion. You will need a full day to cover the entire museum. Spectacular in design layouts of each type of art, i.e. Asian, American,...More

You will not be disappointed....the Museum map will guide you to the period of art you want to see. Great masterpieces await you. Google Phila. Museum of Art and see what is on their calendar. Great gift shop, and a new cafeteria and restaurant.
