Overview

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.

This was my first art museum and to be honest, a large part of the reason why I wanted to go was because of the movie Rocky (hint, I might be lacking in a sufficient amount of culture to appreciate all that I saw, lol)....More

This museum is different than most, if you want to find a particular period of painting, for instance, it's really hard - the rooms aren't numbered clearly, it's hard to figure out where you are. Downstairs you go back and forth between some marvelous Impressionists,...More

We focused on European artists due to our tastes and time available. We found the works featured to be plentiful and well presented. Both our impressionist favorites and the earlier European artists back to 1100 were generous in number and variety. The museum cafe provided...More

Modern Times exhibits is very interesting. I love most of the paintings on oil in canvass especially on Yosemite Fall, 1920 by William Zorach, American, born Lithuania in 1889-1996 and Synchromist Nude 1913 by Morgan Russell, American, 1886-1953. I want to go back again soon.

When you have a rainy day or the sun is too much, go to the PMA and luxuriate in its' impressive collection. Of course you will takeyour picture with Rocky Balboa, but see the art. Cheers.

We saw the museum in passing while touring the city on a "hop on hop off" bus tour. What a grand entrance! We'll be back to wander through the beautiful works of art next time!

Finally made it to the Rocky steps, 2 days before my 50th. Birthday. A dream come true to retrace the steps of my all time favorite movie.

This is a great place to visit if nothing more than just to see the steps that were filmed in the Rocky movie. This was a beautiful section of Philadelphia but man is it a busy place.

This is a must see museum, both inside and out. The museum staff are friendly and helpful. We went on a weekday afternoon and it wasn’t crowded.
