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.

We went with our teenaged sons and a friend on a PayWhatYouWish Wednesday. We all found something amazing to look at. European High Renaissance paintings, ancient Islamic carvings, modern-looking but centuries-old crystal from China, and Diana in the entryway. We barely skimmed the surface. We will go back again and again.

This is a fabulous place to visit while in Pennsylvania. Overlooks the Syukcill River and Boat House Row. If your not aware the first Sunday every month is free. Just make a donation. You could spend days looking over everything. I love the religious art. This is a bucket list place to visit!!

We were originally planning just to have a look at the Rocky statue and the building to soak in the atmosphere since we were short on time, but since it was one of the hottest days my wife got really overheated and started to feel nauseous. We went inside just to get some A/C and the staff saw how bad... More

I've been many times, but was happy to share the armor collection with my son and 6 year old grandson. The boy was hooked and wanted to see much more of this wonderful museum .

Even if the entry price of 14$ isn't cheap, I totally recommend this museum since it was my favorite in North America together with the metropolitan of NY. I won't waste time trying to describe all the marvellous things that are inside.

Well everyone was running up those stairs imitating the great scene from Rocky but be careful of the leaches when taking photos with statues. Asking for tips before giving your camera back. Inside the museum though was very well laid out and clean.

Looking to get a feel for a beautiful art museum? Enthral yourself into the Philadelphia Museum of Art. What a beautiful place. The artwork is out of this world.
