    The Philadelphia Museum of Art is one of the largest art museums in the United States. From world-class collections, exhibitions, programs, and some pretty well-known steps. Don't skip a picture.

    I went there to see the steps from rocky the movie :D and then I saw the museum and I was amazed by what I saw so I entered and it was marvelous inside. I would definitely recommend it to anybody.

    One word: STELLAR. Or how about BREATHTAKING...I came during an impressionist exhibit that was well worth the extra $5. You get access to 3 locations and are allowed 2 days to enjoy every single bit!

    Famous for its entry stairs (the ones Rocky sprinted up) as well as its massive collection. Work spans from medieval to modern, and its Art After 5 events bring a party feel to the hushed environs.

    Sure there's the world-class art downstairs by history's best painters, but don't miss exhibits on the top floor. There's part of a monastery, temple, and a Japanese tea house all INSIDE the museum.

    Not only did Rocky Balboa run the steps, Mac and Carmen from It's Always Sunny did too. Once you finish your celebratory dance at the top, step inside one of the greatest art museums in the world.

    This is one of the largest art museums in the United States, with more than 227,000 pieces but a big attraction for its annual visitors is the 25 or more special exhibitions it puts on each year.

    Wednesday evenings 5-8:45 are now pay what you wish. A really nice time to stroll through... and afterwards, I suggest sitting on the museum steps and enjoying the view of the skyline!

    I love spending an afternoon walking from City Hall to the Art Museum. Admission is discounted with a college ID, so be sure to check out their latest exhibit while you're there!

    Wonderful museum I was lucky enough to work here when I was in college and living downtown. Love the modern art section and if they haven't changed things they have free admission on Sundays

    Don't forget your keys in your car! A good locksmith could cost you a pretty penny. For a cheap 24 hour locksmith in Philadelphia, call Keysafe Philadelphia Locksmith.

    Best times are Wednesday nights (pay-as-you-wish) and Friday nights ("Art After 5" dance party, with a different live music genre every week!)

    Also if you have trouble with the steps they have another entrance around the back where you can be admitted and if you are disabled there is an elevator to get to the other floors:)

    Picasso exhibit is ok, not as informative nor fascinating as the Dali exhibit. I'm always amazed at the way bourgie folk "embrace" such radical artists when they abhor them when they first appear.

    Did you know? Though many visit just for “the Rocky steps” in front, this is in fact one of the largest art museums in the country – the main building alone has 200 galleries! Read more

    Ran the steps and enjoyed the wonderful art pieces. Recommendation... Park in the neighborhood, walk around, grab a cheesesteak and enjoy the sights.

    I like it during quiet aftertoons best. Wander the exhibits virtually alone, and immerse yourself in the authentically represented rooms of different places/times.

    An amazing collection of art and a fantastic way to beat the heat on a hot summer's day. You can easily spend 3hrs wandering the galleries!

    Admission is $20, not free like the DC museums. The scenery and trail behind the museum are awesome as well.

    They'll let you use the restrooms at the back of the building for free after you've run up the steps out in front and need to crap out your cheesesteak(s) you woofed down.
