A Philly must-do list should include the Rocky statue, a Rocky run (or walk) up the museum steps, and a visit to the museum. The museum’s collections include holdings from the Medieval period to the present, with art and sculpture from Renaissance through Modern, and one of the finest collections of American art in the country. Popular galleries include Asian art, Impressionists, photography, and costumes and textiles. Those with more time after visiting the main building can stroll through the outdoor sculpture garden, or take a shuttle to the nearby Perelman Building galleries. Not interested in art? Check out the museum’s arms and armor, the second largest collection in the US. On the first Sunday of each month, the admission fee is “pay what you wish”.
Tired of the same old yoga classroom? On Wednesday nights at the Philadelphia Museum of Art you can check out a Dalí painting and practice your Warrior II all in the same place! The class is part of Pay What You Wish Wednesdays and patrons, you guessed it, can participate in yoga, music lectures or an inspired walk among the artwork for whatever price they choose. (Entrance and activities from 5:00pm to 8:45 pm)
