Although the Kimmel Center features many different types of performers, I've only attended orchestra and opera performances. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are excellent.
I've attended a couple of events at the Perlman Theatre which is housed at the Kimmel Center. It is a much more intimate setting and once again, there isn't a bad seat in the house.
Bathrooms at the Kimmel Center are plentiful, inviting and clean.

You have to see this concert hall. It is shaped like a cello and is very intimate even for the orchestral concerts. Try sitting behind the orchestra for a different view.

Nice combo experience with a fab dinner and A show nearby. Upscale and convenient for short trips into town. A must when in Philly.

This is a beautiful building to see and better to hear a concert in. Good art work. Sometimes they have free pre shows so check it out.

I Kimmel Center was beautiful but where we had to sit with thirt graders made me very nervouse. I was so worried someone would play around and fall. I could not concentrat on the show at all. Hopefully if i ever get back there i will have better seats for me.
