What a wealth of art we have in Philly! Unless you're a long-distance sprinter, be prepared to take several days or even a week to peruse the collections. There's a nice little cafe in the museum, but the local cuisine is even better. And what museum has yoga classes on Wednesday nights? Every Wednesday night, admission is Pay What You... More

A beautiful museum! Too bad the "photographers" ruin the experience. Hide your camera and/or wallet, as you will go home nearly broke or annoyed from the constant begging.

Housed in the building that's the backdrop of boathouse row with steps as famous from the Rocky films as the sublime artwork inside is a comprehensive and massive collection of some of the finest paintings in the world. Most of the master painters' works can be found there- Picasso, Monet, Rembrandt, Pissarro, Degas, Matisse, Warhol, Twombly, Pollock and the list... More

While the main entrance is breathtaking, you can walk into almost any room in this massive museum to discover a masterpiece by nearly all the Masters or find one by an artist you never knew that will stay in your mind or rest in your heart forever. Don't go just once or visit for only a day. This is a... More

Heading along to the Museum of Art was the opportunity to tick off another sight whilst being back in Philadelphia, having only made it as far as the ‘Rocky Steps’ on my last visit. I’ll admit to not being the greatest of art lovers, but I do know what I like and I do enjoy wandering around art museums for... More

Visited the Philadelphia museum with my wife and the boys 9 to 15. It was great experience and in particular the areas where different cultures and architecture environment are exhibited. It is a big museum and quite cheap so it is worth the visit. Plus the location in Philly makes it very nice to walk around.

Yes before you run up the steps like Rocky did be sure to see the famous Rock Statue at the foot of the stairs to the right as you look towards the museum. Once you make the run and are at the top look back and see an amazing view of the Philadelphia Skyline. Great works of art inside as... More

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is a great place for visitors of Philadelphia and city residents both. I went as a visitor to the city on one of their "pay as you like" nights on Wednesday night. The staff was all very friendly that night and the museum as well as the surrounding area is beautiful even on a rainy... More

The collections of Monet and Renoir are fairly large, and absolutely brilliant. The rooms transported from abroad (Asia and Europe) are an interesting experience.
