Full description
Discover the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art with an expert guide on this private tour. The museum was constructed in the wake of the great Centennial Exposition of 1876 and rises on a manmade hill above the city, at the end of a great Parisian-style boulevard that cuts through William Penn's rational grid in a ceremonial flourish.

Everything about the museum, from its founding in the great age of public institutions to its neoclassical temple architecture, speaks to American aspirations at the turn of the last century and the importance of public culture and education. You'll see famous works of art and also see some fascinating lesser know works all with informative commentary from your guide.
