This museum of art is one of the best in the country and definitely not something to be missed. Plan for several hours.

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

I could have spent days there exploring and still not seen it all. Some of the exhibits are so impressive. They have built entire rooms like the French plaza inside of the museum, the Japanese tea houses, and the Chinese temples. It's like walking into...More

I’ve loved the Philadelphia Museum of Art forever, but since moving from NJ to CA, have been annoyed with mediocre ship times from the museum shop. Why does one item require 8 - 10 business days, at almost $8, to reach me? That is unacceptable.

I actually booked tickets through trip advisor. It didn’t save any time though at the museum entrance. The security guard checks your bags and they highly suggest coat and bag check. It makes sense, you can be free to explore. You also won’t bump into...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.
