We highly recommend making time for a free tour led by one of the museum's knowledgeable guides.
We took a casual walk through the American Art exhibit on the first floor before taking our tour. Interesting, but couldn't understand how the rooms interconnected. When the guide led us around the same exhibit there was soooo much more to learn about the history of Philadelphia and the "New World" from the paintings and artifacts.
Well worth the time on a scalding hot day in Philly!
Also, the museum's stores (yes, there are a few) are more than just postcards, prints and magnets. The retail operation is as well curated as the museum itself!

Gorgeous art museum - vast amount to see in their collection. Allow the time to really appreciate. Do be a tourist and run up the steps ala Rocky style. It's fun! Get your kids to video with their phone, and don't forget the fist pump at the end. Line for the Rocky statue can be long -- end of day to see it better. This is a gem of a museum - don't miss if you are an art lover. What a treasure!

I've been to the PMA many many times over the last 5 years and I always enjoy my time there. There are always interesting exhibits coming in and out of there every few months and there's such a diverse collection of artwork and draws me back a few times a year.

You could spend weeks exploring this museum like you could in any world class art museum. There is something for everyone and gems for those who look.

Well, we arrived at 10:00 and left at closing so that is pretty much all you need to know. The building itself is gorgeous...inside and out. Such a HUGE museum but very well laid out and easy to organize your visit.
The staff was friendly and helpful. Everything is spacious and clean. The stores are interesting as well. We went on two of the tours...the Overview One and the American Art one...both were excellent.
Bring your phone fully charged and use the audio links.
We really appreciate how they are working to include Indigenous Art and perspectives as well as including more diversity in all of the exhibits.

Our only suggestions are:
1. The packaged sub we had at the cafeteria was quite overpriced.
2. The Museum includes two days entry and includes the Rodin Museum as well but they have to be back to back days...it would be nice if it was within a week for more flexibility (better to hit museum on the inclement weather days).

Although I do enjoy a good art museum, this visit was solely for the outside of the museum (Rocky stairs, view, etc.) Did the obligatory run up the stairs, jumped at the end and took a pic where Rocky stood (feet engraved on ground). Super cool experience if you're a Rocky fan. Excellent view from the top of the stairs and beautiful building. Next time, hopefully, I'll visit inside.

I do enjoy a well done museum. This one doesn't rival The Met in NYC, nor the historical museums in Italy or Greece but I did enjoy it. Many fine pieces of art.
