Long-time Philadelphian, finally checked this stop off my bucket list. Pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the collection. Also pleasantly surprised by free student/faculty entry. Will return!

Smaller uncrowded museum featuring a fine collection of local artists and changing special exhibits. Parking on sight. Very good gift shop highlighting work by local crafters and jewelry. Lesser known gem in Phil. region.
