The Philadelphia Museum of Art Sculpture Garden and Staff Favorites

Each month, the Philadelphia Museum of Art has something new to offer. Whether it’s a special exhibition or a featured artist, you can almost always leave the museum with a different experience than before.

You can also snag some sweet discounts at the Philadelphia Museum of Art if you know when to go. Every first Sunday of the month and every Wednesday after 5 p.m. is “pay-what-you-wish.” The museum also offers student discounts with a valid university id and even free admission to art students from select universities and colleges.

Last weekend I visited the Philadelphia Museum of Art to document my own personal experience and even get some feedback from museum staff.

As I mentioned in my last post, the museum itself is a work of art. In addition to the spectacular architecture of the museum building, you can also enjoy views of Pennsylvania’s Schuylkill River and appreciate the beautiful public art in the museum’s Sculpture Garden.

In addition to the rich outdoor sculpture, the art museum is home to hundreds of indoor galleries arranged by culture and time period.  To help with my photo excursion, I asked Ben Spitler from Member Services to narrow it down to five of his personal favorites. Meet Ben and his top 5 picks below!

It was fascinating to view the Philadelphia Museum of Art through another’s perspective. On your next museum visit, try asking an expert what some of their favorite exhibits are. You never know what you might find out!

I’d love to hear about some of your favorite works of art too. Feel free to leave a comment and share!
