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.
This photo shows one of the models of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Frank Gehry’s workshop in California. Did you know that the models traveled back and forth from California to Philadelphia three times during the design process? Plan a trip to the Museum to see this model and the rest of Gehry’s ideas in “Making a Classic Modern: Frank Gehry’s Master Plan for the Philadelphia Museum of Art” before it closes on September 1.
