The Philadelphia Museum of Art is renowned for so much more than its role in Rocky. Overlooking the Schuylkill River, the crown jewel of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway impresses with its world-class collection of late-19th- and early-20th-century painting and sculpture. Its permanent collection already boasts masterworks by everyone from Picasso and Van Gogh to Brancusi and Frida Kahlo, but blockbuster special exhibitions held throughout the year bring in even more works of must-see art from around the globe. Besides being a place to roam through galleries, the Museum also serves as a beloved gathering place for the community. Look out for special programming including Art Splash for the kids, Wednesday night yoga and the popular Art After 5 on Friday evenings, which offers a chance to view art after-hours with a cocktail in hand and while live music flows from the Grand Hall.
