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.

This is a small show on the first floor of the museum that’s worth visiting. Like Joseph Cornell, the master box maker of an earlier generation, Boghosian has perfected the art and craft of assembling box-like collages, imaginative sculptures and works on paper with unlikely...More

Most come for the impressionists, which are wonderful, but make sure you go upstairs to the Asian galleries. The rooms imported from elsewhere are amazing.

Fabulous collection and interesting temporary exhibits. You could spend all day here. Also great museum shop. We were approached by one of the guides in cubism exhibit. She was friendly and informative, but a little long-winded.
