Philadelphia for Art Lovers

People come from all over the world to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art—and for good reason. The museum has been around since 1876, first as a centennial exhibition, growing every decade to become the cultural landmark it is today.

But outside the walls of the museum, there are tons of other art-focused exhibits and activities to do—many of which get you outside the confines of a museum. An entire Philadelphia neighborhood focuses on art—with chic boutiques and art galleries lining the streets. And we even have a famous street that offers art everywhere you look (be sure to take a peek down alleyways).

If it’s just simply art museums that pull at your heartstrings, Philly has many of those too, all focusing on different styles of art and housing a variety of artists.
