🗣️ Philadelphia Museum of Art: Meningen
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is an art museum originally chartered in 1876 for the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The main museum building was completed in 1928 on Fairmount, a hill located at the northwest end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at Eakins Oval. The museum administers collections containing over 240,000 objects including major holdings of European, American and Asian origin. The various classes of artwork include sculpture, paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, armor, and decorative arts. The Philadelphia Museum of Art administers several annexes including the Rodin Museum, also located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Building, which is located across the street just north of the main building. The Perelman Building, which opened in 2007, houses more than 150,000 prints, drawings and photographs, along with 30,000 costume and textile pieces, and over 1,000 modern and contemporary design objects including furniture, ceramics and glasswork. The museum also administers the historic colonial-era houses of Mount Pleasant and Cedar Grove, both located in Fairmount Park. The main museum building and its annexes are owned by the City of Philadelphia and administered by a registered nonprofit corporation. Several special exhibitions are held in the museum every year, including touring exhibitions arranged with other museums in the United States and abroad. The museum had 437,348 visitors in 2021, making it the 65th most-visited art museum worldwide.
This museum is very well maintained. The staff are all friendly. There are a lot of options in the food court so you can spend a full day here without needing to leave for a bite to eat. Kids get in free so it's a great spot for a day out with the family.
One of the best museums I've been to with great exhibits from pissaro and monet to Picasso and ancient China. They bring in new exhibits regularly and one can easily spend multiple days here.
Wonderful museum, a must see in Philly! Museum itself is huge we spent probably around 4 hours with breaks. They also have a great dinning area with large food and drinks selections. Definitely take the map as again it is a rather large museum and enjoy!
The details they have put into how they stage the art with architecture makes your visit a true experience. Every area has such thought into how it is arranged that you can spend days there and not notice everything.
We went on a Wednesday and it gave us plenty of space to be here with two toddlers. Due to the speed our son moves at, we finished the whole museum in record timing of about an hour the website said about 2 or 3 hours to see everything though. The staff were very sweet and helpful. We plan on coming back! Also, bring your parking ticket inside to validate it. We paid almost $40 for the parking garage because we thought we needed to leave our ticket on the dashboard, but then we couldn't have it validated for the museum. With validation it's only like $14.
This is a beautiful and well-curated old style art museum. A fine collection of Impressionists, a decent few Van Goghs and a nice bit of Paul Klee. The cultural appropriation is strong throughout, especially on the top floor. If I wanted to see an Indian temple I would go to India or look on the Internet. Leave Indian temples in situ. And European churches. There is relatively little American culture in this collection. But the big Cy Twomblys were interesting. The food was good and the staff reasonably friendly and helpful. I'd go again.
Great museum experience. Recommend you go early, be there at 10:00 opening and avoid crowds. Lots to see so plan on multiple trips. First Sunday of the month is Pay What You Can. Parking is $15. Visited on Weekday Reservation recommended Yes Price for adult entry $1–5 … More
Excellent museum in PA. It is an hour drive from NJ. Good collection of art. Though it is not as big as the Met. The ticket remains valid for 2 days (including the first day of your visit). However, one day may be sufficient. Friendly staff and good cafeteria. All in all a good excursion for the entire family.
Fantastic displays of so many types of art from all over the world and many time periods. I particularly loved the recreations of rooms that were found all over the various exhibits. Definitely visit!
Best museum I have ever been to. Got the bus here. Went on a Friday evening which is ‘pay what do like‘. I was hesitant about paying $25 normal admission, but after seeing it today, it would have been entirely worth it. I’d go back again. I didn’t realise how big their Claude Monet collection is. They have a free bag/coat room which was UNBELIEVABLY helpful as I had been carrying a huge bag all day.
My recommendation is to go on one of the free tours! On a busy weekend, there were still only ~8 people in our hourlong tour and the guide was very knowledgeable and fun. She gave great context for why certain pieces were artistically and historically significant that I otherwise would not have caught onto. It really enriched our visit. The highlights for me were the impressionists (several Monets), the arms and armor rooms, and the recreated rooms from around the world, including an ancient Chinese temple and a Japanese tea house. The last two I mentioned were so immersive compared to a typical art museum experience, and I love the curator’s respect for regional vernacular architecture as high art. There was a neat special exhibit of a contemporary artist when I visited as well, which was laid out in a way that really helped illustrate the artist’s evolution. Small note but if you’re allergic to/scared of bees, take the stairs instead of the ramps :)
I came here by bus on a Sunday afternoon in mid June 2022. The entrance is no longer on the East entrance (where the Rocky Steps are) but the West side of the building. I tried presenting the CityPass I purchased, assuming that the museum was on the list but they told me that it wasn't working on their system. The lady was nice enough to give me a complementary ticket into the museum anyway. The one thing you have to do when you're there is go on the free guide-led tours. Their guides are required to go through a 2-year training program. After their first year of training they're allowed to provide a museum Hightlights tour, which was what I went on. Each guide highlights a different element of the museum so it might be worth it to go multiple times since your ticket allows access for two consequtive days. Each ticket also gives you free entry into the Rodin Museum as well, which is down the street. I wish I also got the $5 audio guide right when I entered since the line got super long after I got in, but I was satisfied with the guide-led tour without the audio guide.
We visited on Friday 6\17\22 and had an amazing time, but the best part was in the arms and armor collection on the third floor where we met an employee named Darryl who gave my three kids a personal mini tour of the gallery, showing them items of interest, telling stories behind the pieces, and engaging them in fantastic ways to find details we wouldn't have known about. On top of that, he was very knowledgeable about the history of the pieces and a genuine pleasure to talk to. He really got us off to a good start at the museum that carried on even after we left his area. We tried to find a supervisor to let them know what a gem they had in Darryl, but didn't see any so I decided to leave it here. He was fantastic. The museum itself is absolutely amazing. Nearly every room wow'ed and astounded with the extent of the display, especially on the third floor where entire rooms were transported and set up as they had been at their original location. It was truly amazing to step into a room and be transported to a temple, home, or other structure with just a few steps. I cannot recommend this museum enough, and if you get the chance to talk to Darryl, do so!
The Jasper Johns exhibit showcases pieces spread across six decades. This abstract impressionist had a process of creating dozens of working proofs before arriving at a finalized piece. Many artists would discard working proofs but Johns archived over 1,700. The old European rifles were also very fascinating and surprisingly ornate for the time periods they came from.
Thank you for the amazing experience. I have not been to the museum in over 30 years. So happy to be back. Filled me with joy to see the Scully exhibit.
I love the place and also the ground that it sits on for photos. When you come make sure you bring a camera shots of the cities are beautiful and also the Riverside is amazing. Great for a nice walk on a beautiful day
One of the best museums on the east coast. Impossible to see everything in one visit as the collection is large and on 3 floors. The art is well displayed and doesn't seem crowded because of its size. Great views of the city from the steps. Good restaurant too.
Coming from an architectural background, this was an experienced of a lifetime. The scale, silence, store carvings and the art displays; everything was just perfect. If you are an art lover or if you just wanna spend time this would be the place. PS It has fine dine services as well, incase you wanna take your date for a charming experience. Go on Fridays and pay as you wish. Experience: 5/5 Value for money: 5/5 Overall: 5.0
I could stay for days and never get bored. My recommendation is that you plan several visits and in each of these, choose one of the galleries to dedicate more time to. Subscribe to receive notifications of all the activities carried out during the year. The first Sunday of the month is pay what you wish. . All the museums in Philadelphia are definitely excellent.
Amazing all day experience. The restaurant Stir downstairs is out of this world. Best quiche I've ever had and I've had many at some of the best places. The cucumber mint cocktail in the restaurant was also good. Handicap entrances are the North and West entrances. East entrance is frustrating, ramps on either side that lead to more stairs.
If your visitor and you want to tour the entire museum in one day it might not be possible because once you get inside, there’s sooo much great paints to look at. On Sunday’s, They let you pay whatever you want to pay and that goes towards charity… on week days is different and I think they close late too. It’s a perfect place for a date catching up…Great view of the city and all sorts of events takes place. It’s also a nice place for workouts running on the steps….. At night is even better, the view is phenomenal and peaceful, it’s safe to be there cops patrols the area frequently
It shouldn't be surprising that the Philadelphia Museum of Art is a world-class museum but I don't think I expected to enjoy it quite as much as I did. I had started at the Rodin Museum, which is pay-as-you-like and whatever you pay there gets taken off your ticket here. Or, I think admission to the bigger art museum includes the Rodin, though I seem to have found it cheaper to go the other way. I started at the bottom and worked my way up - the ground floor holds two huge colonnades and the biggest gift shop. The first floor has a coat check, two wings of galleries (contemporary and early American), two more gift shops and a large cafe. As you go up, the galleries get smaller and smaller - the 2nd floor has stunning famous works from Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Rodin, Degas, Monet, plus halls of contemporary sculpture, plus the huge central stairway with the statue of Mercury. Then the 4th floor- the top, they've transplanted whole buildings, rooms, courtyards, gateways - like walking around the world. There's a Thai temple, a Japanese Tea Garden, several rooms lifted from famous hotel, ship, or apartments, a huge stone church gate, and my favorite, an Italian courtyard with an ancient fountain with running water. It just takes your breath away. It's almost hard to see it all there's so much, but it's definitely worth the effort. And all tickets are good for the following day if you want to break it up a little!
Huge museum with sooo many must see pieces! Note- the entrance at the top of the "Rocky Steps" is closed. You have to use the North/East entrances. The printed map they provide has indicators of specific works that are renowned, so on my quick visit I made a point to see those. A huge variety of art and artifacts (American, European, Asian, Modern, etc). Helpful and friendly staff, clean restrooms, overall very respectful visitors. Highly recommend visiting this museum.
I love this museum and if you love art you probably will too I dislike saying “there’s something for everyone” but truly you will find things that will knock your socks off(who knew Eakins’ medical series was something I just had to see in my life?) The atmosphere is benevolent and considerate of I would guess everyone The paintings are arrayed in such a manner that you can scrutinize detail that you can’t always do in other settings The permanent collection alone has always been worth it for me however I have found the special exhibits compelling and left me with much to think about Very helpful people work here and they really want you to have the best experience the management must treat their employees well As a closer, everything that makes the museum wonderful is equally true of their cafe “Stir” excellent food, prepared artistically and served by people who are not bogged down and want you to enjoy yourself. Perhaps sayIng “there’s something for everyone “ is more fitting as me and m friend don’t eat “normal “ food
Amazing museum! They have got art work from all around the world! A lot of love and dedication has been put in making this place, must visit! Also, it has the famous rocky steps and a great view of beautiful city of Philadelphia
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is paramount within the nation's oldest capital. Not only is the architecture reminiscent of old Roman and Greek styles, it holds thousands of works of art. The staff is very welcoming and willing to answer any inquiries, and they dedicate their time to assisting new visitors. Whether one is interested in the neoclassical styles of American art or the ancient techniques of Egyptian scripture, it can all be found at this iconic museum.
Definitely recommend to Philly tourists, lots of great art to see! I had a wonderful experience - it wasn't busy during the daytime on a weekday, we didn't have to wait at all to buy our tickets and were able to browse the exhibits as long as we wanted. The gift shops are also really fun to explore! There are also a couple eating options on-site for a quick bite.
It was a beautiful museum to visit while you're having a business trip or travel. We purchase tickets for one student and one adult. They offered a student discount. We arrived there when it was about to close so they gave us an extended ticket that we could visit the next day. We couldn't visit since we had to leave but we had fun for less than an hour. The entrance was on the opposite side of the building but we had a chance to walk around the museum. We have got to see the famous sunflower painting by Van Gogh and there was Picasso’s art as well. All the famous painting was there. It was a very nice collection they had and they displayed nice. I highly recommend this place to visit because they have a nice park area that you can have a walk ☺️
Definitely give yourself 3-4 hours to truly soak it in if you're passing through, and don't skip the sculpture garden! When I came here when I was younger, I thought this place was huge and had a lot of varied art. Now that I learned more about impressive collections and legendary artwork - I appreciate this museum so much more. This year, we became members!
As someone who LOVES going to museums... I'm always amazed to see something exceptionally grand. The building remnants and replicas within this massive museum are fantastic! So much to see. I wish I had more time to spend there, but we did a very structured 4-5 hours trying to see EVERYTHING. I'm sure we missed things, but hey something to come back for. If you like art, go! If you're new to museums, go! If you like buildings, go! If you like arms and armor, go! Literally there is something for everyone there. FYI the entrance is not at the top of the large staircase, it's on the opposite side and you have to walk around the building. Still out is worth it to walk to the top of the stairs for the exceptional view. Thanks for a wonderful Sunday at the museum.
