Lots of Cezanne's here. Keep an eye out for the Henri Rousseau's though. Very interesting.
Albert Barnes made a fortune developing an anti-gonorrhea drug (Argyrol) and selling his company at the right time, before antibiotics
The Matisse collection is beautiful; mostly on the second floor. "The joy of life" is a must see!
Croissants are super good!!
Great museum unlike any other
Any amazing collection in a unique arrangement. Dont miss this. Apologies to Mr. Barnes for moving it from the original location against his intent.
My favorite museum in the country, truly amazing, worth several trips. Beautifully redone recently.
Everything about it. It's amazing
Over 180 paintings by Renoir, #1 in the world! Unique display of art.
The view from inside!
Amazing museum. Great works of art all together. Worth every penny.
Interesting lay out. Just like original building. Architect did a good job.
First Sunday of every month is free!
Super great collection. Do the audio tour.
The monet painting of his boat studio...
Whatever you do, be prepared to check your bags. I had my photo gear on me and wasn't going to trust a coatcheck with that. Big dissapointment!
Astonishing collection of artists presented in a thought provoking and unique way. A different experience.
Sketching is NOT allowed in the galleries.
Go for Matisse, stay for the surprisingly beautiful space. Some prefer the original Barnes, but the new museum also offers a great experience. Become a member if you're local!
So much too see just amazing art
You have to get an appointment to enter the museum. The collection is interesting for the pieces but the arrangement of the pieces is also spectacular.
Amazing art collection - a definite must see in Philly.
Come here. Seriously. Wow. !!!!
The collection is sizable. Get the audio but stop to listen in on the docent tours when you encounter them for a richer perspective. It is worth reading on Barnes, Renoir, cezanne, and vangogh before
Beautiful architecture; accessible and not too crowded
You should see this.
Explore the collection of postimpressionist and modern paintings, African sculptures, and Native American textiles.The outside is just as eye-catching, with fountains and a Ellsworth Kelly sculpture.
Thieves! Built on a foundation of lies!
Free audio guides!
A lovely place full of lesser-known works of renowned artists. The audio tour is free and each room also has a paper guide to the art in that room stashed in the room's bench.
Great collection, but staff and security is overly uptight and unhelpful.
Beautiful impressionism art museum
Do not think this is what dr Barnes had in mind art is great
Do not go on the tour. It's beyond patronising if you took art history in middle school.
Amazing docent Linda Robinson and do take her class at barnes
Lots of street parking
The art work is so beautiful. Having the audio to assist in describing the various works of art is essential to ones enjoyment.
They stole this from the Main Line - but it's still the #1 private collection of Impressionist Art in the US. Check out the "Card Players" Cézanne
Incredible Impressionist collection including 181 Renoirs. Try to get a tour if you can, lots of subtle symbolism to his layout.
Awesome museum. A must see if you are visiting Philly. Just make sure you remember to make reservations ahead of time
A series of Persian art work in room 16.
Watch "The Art of the Steal" documentary, the origin of Albert C. Barnes' art collection.
On Friday nights, the otherwise somber space hosts concerts and pours wine until 10 p.m. Day or night, reserve museum tickets ($18) well in advance.
