Overview
More
Set within a lively urban neighborhood, commanding a spectacular view of Fairmount Park, and just across the street from the main Museum building, the Perelman Building galleries and study centers showcase some of the Museum's most comprehensive, colorful, and cutting-edge collections. The new spaces offer a variety of other wonderful new amenities. Among them are a library open to the public and offering a wealth of resources, including ever-changing displays of rare books, precious documents, and graphic arts; a café overlooking a landscaped terrace; a new bookstore; a soaring skylit walkway; and a succession of other spaces in which to stroll, linger, and explore the visual arts.

Great selection of art. Give yourself at least 2 hours. The Rocky steps are a bit of a climb but worthit (they are steps from the street to the museum entrance).

A world-class art gallery. The building itself is impressive enough - classical columns at the summit of broad stone steps. One could get lost in the plentiful rooms.

Great art and a great view from the summit of the steps. We stayed in the European Art Gallery for most of our visit since we enjoy the impressionists. Very worthwhile.

This is a great museum. It is very big. You cannot see it all in one trip, but it is worth going back over and over.
