The Academy has a wonderful collection from the 1700s to present. We really like the museums layout, especially in the original building. Great art displayed expertly - a great combination. The Bill Viola exhibit packs a punch. PAFA is a must see.

Famous for Eakins, this 19th century museum/school is just the right size for an afternoon's dose of painting and sculpture. Right down the street from City Hall, it's easy to get to. Offers top quality 19th and 20th century art in a prime example of Furness architecture. Look for the "crashed airplane" not too far away...

Visited with an art aficionado ( which I am not) and had a pleasant afternoon at his small museum and its annex just across the street.. The many works of Charles Willson Peale were amazing to see in person ( like the George Washington portrait on the dollar bill) The building itself (Frank Furness, 1870?) is on the National Register of Historic Places and had some amazing intricate tile work. The annex across the street had more topical and modern works.

My husband and I visited on a whim and were so glad we did! On the day we visited, we practically had the museum to ourselves. The collection is spectacular, as is the architecture of the building itself. Put it on your list!
