  • The facade of the Academy of Arts of Philadelphia is very beautiful, creative and fun. Situated in front of the Masonic Temple, which differs by total seriousness this. Not to be missed: the alameda side when faced with a plane destroyed in front of a nice coffee. Great place to relax while you enjoy the movement of the city.

  • Don't miss it... The building is an Architectural style. Great collection from old and new times. Its not huge collection buts worth it.  more »
  • We spent most of a day at the 3 museums as it was 90 and the A/C museums were A GREAT PLACE TO SPEND THE TIME BETWEEN WALKS ABOUT TOWN.  more »

  • It certainly a nice visit. The staff were nice, I was being stared at by one employee but they were just doing their job that everything runs smoothly. I do wish that there were more to explore, it seemed like a place to spend one to two hours on. Perhaps having a more detailed description of the art or the artist would also be nice.
  • Went there for formal dinner party. The art clearly speaks for itself. And the interior allows for awesome pics.
  • Excellent place to bring students to get lessons in fine art. Classes are not long and the tours are great for intermediate grade students.
  • Great place. The museum are separated into two building, so make sure you check both out😂😂
  • This is an art treasure,that has supported and proudly displayed controversial of Artists of the times. For example,Thomas Eaken's,circa 1900. To this very day,they display,controversial artists. Many of them,are non-white. Theiir school,even now, is at least;as important-as their museums. Don't miss the annual displays,of the current PFA student.
