The Barnes Foundation is a great building for viewing the art, and I saw many works I had never seen. However, I am not a huge fan of the way in which Dr. Barnes hung the artwork, with so many pieces on a wall. I did not favor the lack of descriptive text, either, but that is just me. I spent about 5 hours, with a few breaks, viewing the whole collection. Toward the end, I wanted to see more, but at the same time felt like a soaked sponge unable to absorb any more.
Parking tip--there is nearby on-street parking for $1.25 per hour, for up to 12 hours. That is less expensiver than the on-site parking lot.
