Statue of rocky (Sylvester stallion )
Even though the place is historic in value it does need restoration.

“World Class Collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The museum has an excellent collection of Asian artifacts including an authentic Japanese Tea House, an Indian Pillared Hall, and a full Chinese Reception Hall, as well as other treasures. The American art collection is also noteworthy. Visitors can easily spend an entire day at the museum. Also, there is a very good cafe on the first floor.

“Phila at Christmas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

You can't beat Philadelphia at Christmas. The Art museum and Christmas market were great fun. There was so much to see and do and so little time.

“Amazing collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Excellent collection! This museum is very large and to truly enjoy all of it I suggest taking a few days to take it all in. It is beautiful inside and outside, I try and go as often as I can.
