amazing architecture and incredible entry way. This building is part of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, just across the street. Don't miss it if you are visiting the Museum

Perelman Building is a short walk from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The exhibit is Off the Wall and the designs were pretty amazing. I loved the denim fancy jacket - 1974 Anna Vapolesny. Stop by you will not be disappointed.

We visited specifically to see the boxing photo exhibit. It was arranged really well. The building itself is beautiful and the elevator is really vintage cool. Nice gift shop as well!

The Perelman had a phenomenal exhibit on the real history of Philadelphia, the kind of things you wouldn't normally see in art museums. Definitely go!

I have been meaning to pop in here for a few years now. It is an extension to Philadelphia Museum of Art and houses an exhibition space in addition to an upstairs gallery of textiles. Given the size of the building I was surprised at how relatively small the space was inside. Having said that, the exhibition "Philadelphia Assembled" was thought provoking.
There is also a small restaurant which served delicious food that was culturally inspired by the exhibition.
The real strength of the Perelman though, are the archives for research in textile and photography. I would imagine this is a boon for art students.
