Perelman Building

Museum in Logan Square & Fairmount

This fine art-deco building, a branch of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, houses small galleries devoted to special exhibitions of costumes, textiles, prints, drawings, photographs, and modern and contemporary design.

Known as 'the Gateway to Fairmount Park' when it opened in 1927, the building was originally offices for the Fidelity Mutual Life Insurance Company. It has an elaborately sculpted facade decorated with Egyptian-inspired reliefs.
