Description

If you're looking for art, then you came to the right place! Simply put, the Philadelphia Museum of Art houses one of the most diverse and comprehensive collections of artworks in the United States, which brings together pieces from Europe, Asia, and America. With three beautiful buildings, each with their own unique style, the PMA is a paradise for art-lovers.

This landmark building's mission statement was to make the world of art accessible to all, and, on that front, it certainly succeeded! Whether you're a paid-up art buff, or a keen newcomer, you'll find more than enough to surprise and delight you in the Museum's mammoth collection.

Built in 1928, the museum now houses a mind-boggling 240,000 artworks – spanning sculpture, painting, photography, and even decorative armor! From the early Impressionists to some of the largest collections of works by Duchamp and Brancusi, as well as the most ground-breaking contemporary art, the PMA truly deserves its title of 'The Cultural Heart of Philadelphia'.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is packed to the gills with creative expressions from the world over, but it's just as much a work of art itself. You'll find yourself in a Chinese reception hall, a Japanese teahouse, an Indian temple hall and more. It's art within art, in one of the greatest galleries in the world!
