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.
City of Brotherly Love, meet the City of Brotherly … Killing? On April 21, 752 BC (or 753 BC?—no one’s quite sure about the year, but they all agree on the day), Romulus killed his brother Remus and then founded the city of Rome. If the story isn’t crazy enough for you, just remember that Romulus and Remus were orphaned as babies but were nursed by a wolf until they were discovered and raised by the shepherd Faustulus. And you thought your family was weird. “Romulus and Remus Nursed by a She-Wolf,” 1805, by Josef Bergler II
