Famous for the scene in "Rocky", this museum is so much more than the "Rocky Steps and Statue". Take time to peruse the amazing displays inside.

Access to public parking good. The museum work and exhibits excellent. Well worth the visit. I rank it as one of the best in the country with the buildings architectural being as much of an art piece as the contents it holds. Two thumbs up.

I visited with and art student and it helped me gain a better understanding. One piece of advice I was given was to read the descriptions next to the art pieces. It helps.

This art museum is one of the best in the world. The permanent collection needs a visit for itself. I especially enjoy twentieth-century American artists Edward Hopper, Horace Pippin, Marsden Hartley, and Charles Demuth and Philadelphia scenes by Thomas Eakins. The special exhibitions are unique...More

Whatever you do, go to the japanese tea house and the remains of the spanish monastery. There is also an incredible collection of Greek and Roman and ancient world art. Then there is the 20th century art - one of the greatest collections in America.

Definitely worth the entrance fee! Many famous paintings and works of art plus a beautiful view of the city from the top of the stairs. Rocky statue is always fun to pose with.

Huge museums, many permanent exhibitions. Historical furnished rooms. Archeology department. You'll need at least 2 to 4 hours.

Not necessarily. The best bargain is Sundays, when you get in free, or pay what you like.
