There is a wide range of art periods to be viewed and special exhibits at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I especially loved the Asian Art. When we were there on displace was some wonderful Fashion. Worth spending a day or two here.

It was great to watch so many people enjoying this space, especially the ones that dressed up and reinacted the run up the stairs. There were rennovations going on while we were there, so some of the view was interrupted. There was quite a big...More
