This museum offers many great things to see, but at the same time it is famous for the Rocky Balboa statue, nowadays placed at base of the main stairs on the front side of the building. Fun is made by all people who run on the steps from bottom to the top, imitating Rocky once they reach the top. No matter if they are young or adult, male or female. From the top of the stairs you can enjoy the most beautiful view of the city.

Well done exhibition. We came from Germany to see Marcel Duchamp! The permanent exhibition as well as the temporary one were amazing.

Never overcrowded, and when you pay you receive TWO days of entrance to all their museums. This is well worth the 20$ entrance fee.

Fantastic collection, with various special exhibits, of art from all eras.
Allow plenty of time and be sure to run up the Rocky Steps - absolute must for tourists.

Although we did not have time to enter the museum we thoroughly enjoyed our experience on its grounds. The peripheral activities of a Saturday marathon were abuzz at the base of the "Rocky" steps. Numerous people were jogging up the steps in fine Rocky fashion. The building facade is lovely. The view down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway is beautiful. It really had a great atmosphere.
