Breath Taking 12/6/2005

I am a big fan of art mueseums. And I love this one. The architecture of the building is very pretty on the Ben Franklin Parkway. And the best thing is admission is only 12 dollars for an adult.,8 dollars for a student and children an 9 for seniors! You can not beat that as you can stay all day! My favorite thing about the museum is the asian art section ive always been fascinated by the intricate designs. I feel really peaceful when Im there. I found all the facilities to be clean but I do think they could have more bathrooms! Make sure that you have a comfy pair of shoes on as you will be doing a lot of walking because the place is quite large. It is a wonderful way to expose kids to culture. more

You'll go back again and again! 8/17/2005

This is one of the largest art museums in the USA. The collections are so impressive. If you have preteen sons do not forget to visit the arms and armor exhibit, they always like it! I personally enjoy the large collection of Impressionist art. There are always a variety of traveling exhibits, too. There is no way to take in the whole museum in one visit, so limit yourself to a time period, type of art, or one of the many tours available each day. This is the museum with all of those steps from Rocky...if you can run all the way up, really run not trot, everyone will be impressed. You still see people trying it out all of the time. I am also pretty sure that the museum is free if you go at a certain time on Sundays. more

Art and Jazz at the Philadelphia Museum of Art 8/16/2005

For me, the two highlights of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in terms of times to visit are Friday nights and Sundays. Sundays are "pay what you wish" but you must pay at least a dollar so in essence you get to see a world-class art museum for a dollar (this does not include special shows such as the recent Dali exhibition). Friday nights offer live jazz in the museum atrium where you can sit at a table drinking wine and eating delicious chocolate mousse (full dinners are also served but I have never partaken). In addition, you can walk around the lower galleries in the museum on Fridays which includes the Impressionist collection the museum is particularly strong in. Unfortunately, on Friday nights, the upper galleries which include some of the famous "rooms" of the museum are not open. In addition to the Impressionist collection, the museum is also particularly strong in "rooms" which include a Japanese tea house which will make you swear you are actually outside, various temples, Napoleonic palace-type rooms. In sum, the museum is a must-see for locals and for visitors to Philly, It's great for families and for dates or just with friends. And the cafe in the basement is not overly expensive (considering it is a museum) with fairly tasty soups and sandwiches. more
