  • Awesome place to visit! Affordable because it's free :). No drinks allowed, gift shop indoors, beautiful display and amazing staff. A view of the city on the top floor too
  • It is beautiful to see all walks of life. The bottom to the top. Homeless and broken all the way to the rich and famous.
  • The relaxed atmosphere, the inspirational architecture by Frank Furness, the knowledgeable, friendly staff, cutting edge exhibits. Thomas Eakins basically returns to life.
  • I love big art and I cannot lie! I'd you do two this place is for you! Alao, ifs never crowded! Makes it worth the steep admission $!
  • The best place for American art. Famous pieces as well as a contemporary vision; in a really cool historic building.
