Hands down, one of my favorite art museums in the entire USA (and that's coming from someone who actually has visited all 50 states, honest!). The Asian art galleries are especially good, with walk-through reconstructed environments including an Indian temple and a Japanese teahouse. Totally blew my mind, especially when I was a college student. Tip for film junkies: this is the place to jog to the top of the museum steps and raise your arms triumphantly to the sky just like Rocky.

Very large museum with a huge collection of all types of art from Renaissance to Modern. Don't try to see it all in one visit as this is one of the largest collections in America. After 5pm on Wednesdays is free and your entry to the museum is good for two days so plan accordingly. Nice cafe for cake and coffee if you need a break.

Known as much for its steps as for the museum behind them, this is a great spot right near the river. If you make it past the Rocky impressions on the steps, there is a nice collection to discover.

Philadelphia Museum of Art is one of the largest art museums in the US. It has great collections of European, Asian and American art spanning many centuries. Every year the museum hosts a number of special exhibitions, some of them being world-class. The main building of the museum has a great location with spectacular views of Philadelphia skyline and Ben Franklin Parkway at the top of the “Rocky steps”. At the bottom of the steps you can find the Rocky statue (it’s very popular - everyone wants to have picture taken with it). There is a nice café at the museum which serves very good food (catered by famous Stephen Starr). The “Art After 5” program happening every Friday night is a great way to relax with a glass of wine and enjoy music by local performers (all kinds of music genres).Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

The famous Rocky Steps are the 72 steps in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in Pennsylvania. On the top of the stairs are a set of Converse footprints where the bronze statue of Rocky used to reside until the controversial relocation of the statue.
This shot was taken facing southwest into Philadelphia, over Eakins Oval, where the Washington Monument fountain is located. The Washington Monument was erected in 1897 at the entrance to Fairmount Park, and later located to the current location in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
