Plan to spend four hours or more. I have been to NYC, Italy, and more. This art museum is on par with some of the greats. Also, the steps out front are the "Rocky" steps, which makes for good people watching!

What can I say? Monet, Monet, Monet, Van Gogh, Hopper, Picasso, Degas, and more. That was just the modern wing. We didn't get to the other side of the museum in our too-brief afternoon. Next trip: the European masters and more. Can't wait to go back. We're from Boston, and I think Philadelphia has a better museum than ours (and ours is considered to be pretty good).

Great collection, sculpture garden, gift shops. Friendly staff, knowledgeable docents, photography is allowed (no flash). I will definitely return to this fabulous place.
While you are there, a photo on the "Rocky" stairs is mandatory...and don't forget to check out the statue of Rocky at the foot of the stairs.

Comparable to the Met and other great museums. I was very impressed with the quality and variety of art displayed. We spent more than 4 hours in there.

We did not go inside because we arrived after the museum had closed for the day, but we did run up the front steps and enjoyed the beautiful fountain out front. There is a large statue of ROCKY out on the grounds. It was a cool place to visit and it's free if you don't go inside!
