Philadelphia Museum of Art Photos

By

Rising majestically at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the Philadelphia Museum of Art stands among the great art institutions of the world and one of the most recognizable buildings in the Philadelphia area. In the over 125 years since its founding, the museum has grown far beyond the limits originally set for it. Today the Museum houses over 300,000 works of art encompassing some of the greatest achievements of human creativity, and offers a wealth of exhibitions and education programs for a public of all ages.

In addition to its extensive collection of art housed within the museum, the museum has an extensive collection of public art located on its grounds. We are pleased to offer you a collection of photos of the museum, its grounds and the public art found on its grounds.
