Though it has a selected collection it has quality. I like the way they have presented differ cultures/periods by recreating the original surroundings. One can imagine being in Japan or China.

They have a great collection of art from multiple countries and multiple time periods. If you are really into art, leave hours to explore the many rooms of impeccably displayed pieces.

On our way through our self-guided tour of Philadelphia, we walked up to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The front entrance was featured in the "Rocky" film and so you can watch fit (and not so fit) people run up the steps to the top....More

Not necessarily. The best bargain is Sundays, when you get in free, or pay what you like.
