“among the largest art museums in the US”

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is among the largest art museums in the United States. It has collections of more than 227,000 objects that include "world-class holdings of European and American paintings, prints, drawings and decorative arts." The Main Building is visited by more than 800,000 people annually, and is located at the west end of Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Other museum sites include the Rodin Museum, also located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway; the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Building, across the street from the Main Building; and historic houses in Fairmount Park. The Perelman Building opened in 2007, and houses some of the more popular collections, as well as the Museum's library, with over 200,000 books and periodicals, and 1.6 million other documents.

The museum is closed on Mondays, and the basic entrance price is $20, with various concessions. The museum holds a total of about 25 special exhibitions every year, including touring exhibitions arranged with other museums in the United States and abroad. Some have an extra charge for entrance.

A great museum. There is a fantastic collection of art (I'm a sucker for their Impressionist collection), but also many religious and cultural artifacts. The Asian section, with a rebuilt Hindu (?) temple and Japanese tea ceremony is worth the visit alone. Plan lots of time, because you won't run out of things to see.

If you're looking for a good workout, run up these stairs just like Rocky did. I wonder if there is a record of the fastest time someone has run up them.

Even if you don't like art, you can still run up the steps, Rocky-style, just like in the movie!!

The art here is fantastic, though I'm not very into the armory section of the museum

I'm not really an art museum type traveller. But this place was beautiful. We went on a name your own price night to avoid the steep admission. Spent an hour or so touring the galleries. Then spent awhile outside admiring the grounds and posing with Rocky.
