The Philadelphia Museum of Art Near Rittenhouse Claridge in Philadelphia: More Than a Famous Set of Steps

October 16, 2014

Sadly, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is probably best known for its moment in pop culture’s spotlight. The massive museum, which is just a short trip from Rittenhouse Claridge, is actually much more than a set of stairs and a Rocky statue. It’s also home to more than 227,000 eclectic works that span many centuries and show off the handiwork of some of the world’s most illustrious artists.

Degas, Cezanne, Thomas Eakins, and Rogier van der Weyden all claim space at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. They’re just a handful of the masters who contributed to the museum’s collection of Renaissance, Impressionist, American, and modern art. Step inside to take a journey through different eras of creation. Upstairs, you’ll encounter everything from a medieval cloister to an Indian Temple. Keep an eye on the website for traveling exhibits, too, since they often bring the works of even more famous artists to the museum.
