    FREE First Sundays. Get there early for timed tickets! One person can get 2 tickets. Once it's your time, head inside and go past the desks straight to the line! Busy at first, calms before closing.

    If you visited the origins site you will be impressed with how well they moved everything. The collection is an oasis in the middle of an urban locale. The paid tour is worthwhile for 1st time visit

    Some of the the world's best impressionist art meticulously curated in a very modern structure.

    A worthy counterpoint to the nearby Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation’s new building in Logan Square displays one of the world’s best collections of French Impressionism.

    some amazing collection

    Amazing private collection! Aside from a poor organization of entry- a must see! Largest collections of Renoir in the world. Great post impressionist collection overall

    Easily my favorite museum in the city. If you're a fan of Impressionism, this is the best collection in the US
  • Caroline C.
    Amazing collection and story. Buy tickets in advance, limited per day. The tour was better then the self-guided audio tours. Take a lunch break at their restaurant if tired, food is decent!

    All the paintings could spend a,week looking and studying the works of art. First went when it was in the house.

    Had mixed feelings visiting here. The collection was amazing but the new museum is so clearly against what Barnes had in his will (see the Art of the Steal documentary).

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Come here. Seriously. Wow. !!!!
  • Cristene G.
    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
