No matter what they're showing at the art museum, the exhibits are fantastic, and the displays laid out in a great way the let's you explore and wander through different eras and geographical locations. Great trip for a date, or for an art history class (I did both at the same time haha) or just chilling by yourself. If you like art, and appreciate nearly every form of it, go here.

We enjoyed the museum greatly. The arms and armor section was especially interesting. The entrance was not easily accessed from the bridge. Go to the left.

World class museum and probably the city's most prominent attraction. Don't miss the current exhibit "Outsiders' Art."

I have been going to the Philadelphia musuem of art since I was a little girl with my mom. I love to travel and every city I visit I try to find an art museum. Philadelphia has an amazing collection of art. The yearly member price pays for itself especially since it includes the Perelman building and Rodin Building. One ticket may seem a little pricey, but it includes access for two consecutive days to main Museum building, Perelman Building, Rodin Museum, and Historic House Mount Pleasant. If you are visiting Philadelphia, it is a must!

Some recent special exhibitions have gotten a bit bizarre but the permanent collection is always enjoyable. Tours with a docent are a great way to "see" more. Docents are knowledgeable and entertaining. Food in cafeteria or Granite Hill is delicious.
