Philadelphia Museum Of Art And Rocky Statue, Philadelphia Reviews - Write a Review
Upon arriving I saw a poster advertising a piece of artwork by Marcel Duchamp, The Fountain. I went into the men’s restroom and saw what must have been more in his series, two urinals side by side. I actually got to use one. Wow, how exciting! Then I went to see the other exhibits, all which are wonderful. I never did go see Marcel’s piece that was advertised. But now I’m aware of his genius work all over the country. Only a genius could do this knowing you can’t fix stupid.
The iconic Philadelphia Art Museum definitely delivers. It's a great way to learn about different art periods and cultures along with being exposed to new offerings that are unexpected but definitely welcomed! Walking in, the entrance is exceptional. You walk up the steps (yes THE famous Rocky steps) and have a moment to peep the view once you make it to the large landing. Walking in the workers are very welcoming and guide you in so you can register as well as offer different tidbits on the current exhibitions. I really enjoyed the Japanese Tea Garden and Indian exhibit! I recommend going on a weekend day so you have a good amount of time to peer through the galleries. There are also additional locations you can visit which are accessible via a Trolley! Definitely try to stop by the Perelman Building! Have fun meandering at this must see Philadelphia site!
Great museum with so much to see. There is something there for all art lovers. We were there when they offered 2 days of viewing with your ticket. The museum is very large, so that is a great option. A very bare bones cafe for such a large museum, but you are not there to eat. And if you are a Renoir lover, make sure you also go to the nearby Barnes Collection. It is absolutely fabulous.
Beautiful building. Nice staff. I enjoyed the Asian art exhibit with Buddha and the hut. It was huge, we just couldn’t make it through the entire museum. $20 Was a fair price for entry and we were able to walk up the stairs rocky ran up to.
This place here is a gem. We stopped on the way to NYC and we had wished we stayed a night in Phillie. This is mostly due to this amazing place. The building is exquisite inside and out. The art is simply amazing. You will need a couple if hours and some good walking shoes. A must see.
