Philadelphia Museum of Art information
To many, this building is simply the steps Sylvester Stallone ran up in the 1976 flick Rocky . But well beyond that, this is one of the nation's finest treasure troves, featuring excellent collections of Asian art, Renaissance masterpieces, post-impressionist works and modern pieces by Picasso, Duchamp and Matisse. Especially neat are the complete rooms: a medieval cloister, a Chinese temple, an Austrian country house.
There's so much to see that a ticket gives admission for two days, here and at the separate Perelman Building, two nearby historic homes and the Rodin Museum . Wednesday and Friday nights are pay-what-you-wish (but note the Perelman is closed).
