Philadelphia Museum of Art
A Philly must-do list should include a stop at the bronze Rocky statue (commissioned by Sylvester Stallone for Rocky III and reluctantly erected in its current place by the Philadelphia Museum of Art), a Rocky-inspired run (or walk) up the museum steps, and, of course, a visit inside the museum. The impressive collection includes holdings from the medieval period to the present, with art and sculpture from Renaissance through today, and one of the finest collections of American art in the country. Popular galleries include ones devoted to Asian art, Impressionism, photography, and costumes and textiles. Not interested in art?  You'll still want to see the museum’s arms and armor rooms which display the second largest collection in the U.S. Take time to stroll through the outdoor sculpture garden, or take a shuttle to the nearby Perelman Building galleries. On the first Sunday of each month, the admission fee is pay what you wish.

Do Yoga Among Priceless Works of Art
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)
