I´m sure the museum is fantastic, however I just came for the Rocky photo opp. We had a great time doing videos and pictures.

Along with the outdoor sculptures, the museum has a spectacular collection of medieval armor. The Friday night Jazz and Cocktails was a pleasant surprise.

Suggestion... go on the "pay as you wish" evening from 5-845. Well worth the trip, spent an enjoyable 2 hours here.

Visited between exhibits. The impressionist art is wonderful and enjoyed some of the modern and contemporary works. Lots of Renoir and Monet were on display. Plenty of cubists. Check out the building and the view of the city from the famous Rocky stairs.

A large and well-curated museum. It stands very well alongside other world-leading examples. Not quite the Met or the National Gallery standard, but well worth a visit. It was not busy, which was nice.

Everyone must run these steps at least once in their life! Just like Rocky did in his movies. The statue is being renovated but is gorgeous! (We love you Rock! - And I love yous too!)

I've been to the art museum many times. The setting is majestic atop a hill along the banks of the Schuylkill River and at the end of the Ben Franklin Parkway. The Rocky statue is just at the bottom of the museum steps made famous...More

This fountain has been in several movies and is besautiful! There is a lot of construction going on in this area so be careful.

Famous for the scene in "Rocky", this museum is so much more than the "Rocky Steps and Statue". Take time to peruse the amazing displays inside.

Not necessarily. The best bargain is Sundays, when you get in free, or pay what you like.

Sorry, I really can't answer that. In my experience though, right when a gallery or museum opens is usually the best time and then again around 5pm. Tours usually show up around 10am and most people will be heading off to... More
