add to My Experience

Like Philadelphia’s own Parthenon, the Philadelphia Museum of Art sits majestically on a rise at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The vast collections of this temple of art make it the third-largest art museum in the country, and an absolute must-see on the city’s cultural circuit.

View striking Renaissance master paintings, elaborately carved stone altarpieces along with entire period rooms and architectural settings from around the world.

The American collections range from fine examples of revolutionary-period furniture to the paintings of Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins. From the world-renowned collections of French Impressionism, visitors enter the striking suite of galleries dedicated to modern and contemporary art.
