Pennsylvania Academy Of The Fine Arts - Review

A museum and an art school, the Academy houses a magnificent collection of American art. It was established in 1805, and has slowly but steadily become one of the most important art fixtures in the country thanks especially to its regular and terrific exhibitions and acquisitions. The Furness-Hewitt building.

It is regularly described as one of the most magnificent examples of Victorian Architecture in the country. The other building, the Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building, currently houses the Academy. The architecture is wild but the exhibits are even more impressive. Visitors will rarely appreciate one and not the other. When you walk around, you might see some of the students painting from the masterpieces.

  • It certainly a nice visit. The staff were nice, I was being stared at by one employee but they were just doing their job that everything runs smoothly. I do wish that there were more to explore, it seemed like a place to spend one to two hours on. Perhaps having a more detailed description of the art or the artist would also be nice.

  • Went there for formal dinner party. The art clearly speaks for itself. And the interior allows for awesome pics.

  • Excellent place to bring students to get lessons in fine art. Classes are not long and the tours are great for intermediate grade students.

  • This is an art treasure,that has supported and proudly displayed controversial of Artists of the times. For example,Thomas Eaken's,circa 1900. To this very day,they display,controversial artists. Many of them,are non-white. Theiir school,even now, is at least;as important-as their museums. Don't miss the annual displays,of the current PFA student.

  • Great place. The museum are separated into two building, so make sure you check both out😂😂
