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.

A sampling of works in our collection from the 1913 Armory Show. Stop by today from 1:30-2:30 to catch the last lecture in the series “Exploring American Modernism: The Armory Show at 100.”

This year marks the centenary of the Armory Show, the International Exhibition of Modern Art, held in New York. The exhibition was the first encounter most viewers had with European or American modernist art. The 1,300 artworks on view were seen by many as oddities, in part because they were so vastly different from established trends.
