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.

Today is World Water Day! Curious about the history of sustainable water sources in Philadelphia? Next door to the Museum is the Waterworks Building, dating back to the early 1800’s. Now a restaurant and interpretive center, it remains as beautiful as artist Colin Campbell Cooper depicted it in this 1913 painting. 
Want to learn more? Beginning April 3, the Museum will offer public walking tours on Wednesdays and Sundays at 2:30 p.m
