  • One of the very best art museums in North America
    by  on 06/14/2008

    World class museum. Superb collection: not only fantastic examples of European and American art, but something for everyone. Across the street is the new Perelman wing of contemporary art. A short walk down Franklin Parkway is the Rodin Mueum (part of the Philadelphia Museum of Art). A Japanese Buddhist temple was taken apart and reassembled here. The galleries of seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century American furniture, silver, pottery, glassware, etc is unsurpassed. Although not quite as great as New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, I believe the Philadelphia museum surpasses easily the art museums of Chicago, Boston, Atlanta or Houston.

  • My Favorite Art Museum
    by  on 11/22/2007

    This is my favorite art museum in the country. Unlike some of the other art museums in bigger cities, it is not crowded so you can't enjoy yourself. There is a wide variety of art for everyone.

  • Should be the best
    by  on 06/04/2003

    The Philadelphia Museum of Art should be at the top of this list. I grew up right outside of Philly in the Suburbs and now live in Chandler, AZ. The first thing I do when I visit my hometown is go to the Art Museum. Not only is the architecture beautiful, there are people from all around the world, the art is fantastic, the food superb and very well priced in the upper dining room (service is phenomenal)-just dress nice, and the view..impecable. So, why don't you make it number 1? Thanks.

  • Surprisingly Good Collection
    by  on 02/07/2003

    I have always been impressed with the art collection here. While it's not th eMEt, it definitely competes with other museums I have seen in Chicago, Toronto, and DC. The building itself is beautiful and the location couldn;t be more perfect for an Art Museum. also, Wed and Fri nights are great for dates. they bring in a wide variety of musical acts as well as show movies, give tours and lectures. You can also walk around and look at the collections after an overpriced glass of wine.

  • PMA - A musium for everyone.
    by  on 01/14/2003

    The Philadelphia Museum of Art is an amazing experience that everyone can enjoy. Filled with beautiful examples of art from all genres including historical notes, descriptions of the style and techniques and even comments on the historical significant of the work and or it's artist. The museum itself is a beautiful work of art. The staff keeps the facility looking good and functioning properly and is always eager to help. If Philadelphia is your destination, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is a must see.

    the art museum is for everybody. anybody can find something to explore and enjoy there. if they can't they haven't tried that hard. feeding your creative self takes some little bit of effort but at the art museum there is such an incredible variety.

  • Attractive
    by  on 10/10/2002

    I think it's the entire setting of the Art Museum, the location, off the drive and all, which seals the attraction for the museum. The ability it has to capture everything as far as the city goes, example when you stand at the top of the stairs or stand below by the fountain. The building itself has an essence and presence. It's just very attractive.
