Philadelphia Museum of Art | Our Story

Sitting atop some very famous steps, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is among the largest museums in the United States, with a collection of more than 227,000 works of art and more than 200 galleries presenting painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, decorative arts, textiles, and architectural settings from Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the United States.

Our facilities include our landmark Main Building on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Perelman Building, located nearby on Pennsylvania Avenue, the Rodin Museum on the 2200 block of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and two 18th-century houses in Fairmount Park, Mount Pleasant and Cedar Grove. We welcome you to enjoy a variety of activities for public audiences, including special exhibitions, programs for children and families, lectures, concerts and films.



There are just two weekends left to see “Zoe Strauss: Ten Years” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It’s one of the best and one of the most important exhibitions of the year. Don’t miss it. 

Throughout the exhibition, Strauss has kept office hours at the museum. Click here to see the calendar of events for the last 10 days of the show. This post on Modern Art Notes might give you a sense of what Strauss’s office hours are like.

Strauss was my guest on Episode Ten of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. It’s one of my favorite shows. Don’t miss the part where Strauss talks about how the preparation for her show was interrupted by a double murder on the south Philadelphia block on which she lives. Amazing stuff.
