What is there to do?

The wonderful world of art comes to life at the Philadelphia Museum of Art!

Overlooking one of the nation's most culturally vibrant cities, the Philadelphia Museum of Art allows the entire family to embark upon a walk through time that extends across two millennia and six continents - pretty amazing!

Inside, this museum is home to a world-renowned collection, bringing the art to life and inspiring visitors to discover the spirit of imagination. The museum want to connect all who visit with the art in rich and varied ways, making your experience surprisingly, lively and memorable.

The museum's collection is their pride, featuring artwork from some of the most notable artists in history. They hold the world's largest and most important collection of works by Duchamp, as well as display iconic works from the likes of Cezanne, Monet, and of course, Pablo Picasso himself.

It's not just paintings that feature in the museum either! Art takes shape in so many forms, so take time to explore the sculptures, and the furniture, the silver and the ceramics. There are even creations of the Shakers and Pennsylvania Germans which reflect the state's central role in American history.

Don't miss the extraordinary period rooms either, and architectural ensembles from around the world.

What began as a legacy of the Centennial Exhibition all the way back in 1876, today offers an invaluable art experience for the whole family, so are you ready to walk the halls with some of the greatest artworks of all time?

They are there waiting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art!
