Philadelphia Museum of Art

Philadelphia Musuem of Art:

This museum is beautifully crafted! Most of the exhibits are integrated into the architecture of the room and are interactive. I really love seeing how artifacts were implentened into an experience. The museum really used pieces as they were originally intended, as architectural elements.

I purchased an annual membership this year in the hopes of taking friends and family for a discount price. The museum is large enough to merit multiple trips just to look and admire the glass ware collection let alone any of the other collections.

I spent more time admiring the architectural pieces but photographing the ceramics.


Of particular interest to a friend of mine who I joined in the museum was the Frank Gehry renovation. We managed a peek into the new restaurant but the second stair well was yet to be revealed. I look forward to seeing how the work merges with such a historic, classic looking building.
