Philadelphia Museum of Art

Situated minutes from our hotel, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is the third largest art museum in the United States, and is well-known for its role in the ""Rocky"" movies. The museum sits majestically on a rise at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway; its interior is even more impressive, with a collection that covers over 2,000 years. You'll discover paintings, sculptures, arms and armor, textiles, prints, drawings, photography and more during your visit.

Barnes Foundation

The Barnes Foundation's roots stretch back to 1922, when Albert Barnes made it his mission to promote education and the appreciation of fine arts and agriculture. The museum, which opened 90 years later, sits on four-and-a-half acres of landscaped grounds, and has ecological features that include a green roof and permeable surfaces that allow for rain and water re-use. The Barnes Foundation is home to some of the world's most important Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and early Modern paintings; it also features Old Master works and a collection of Native American jewelry, African sculpture and antiquities.
