The Basics

Standard admission to the museum includes entry to the main building plus the separate Rodin Museum, Perelman Building, and the Mount Pleasant and Cedar Grove historic houses. Visit via a hop-on hop-off tour (buses stop outside) to combine the museum with Philadelphia’s other key sights.

The Museum of Art also features on most Philadelphia tours, usually in the form of a stop outside to admire its Rocky Steps and grand portico. See it on a Segway, trolley, or bike tour or on a private panoramic city drive. If you’re visiting from out of town, the museum is typically included on single- or multi-day trips from New York that team Philadelphia with destinations such as Washington DC.

Great Segway tour!
Highlight of our Philly visit. Barry's emphasis on safety made me feel more comfortable with riding a Segway. He was extremely knowledgeable about Philly and told interesting and engaging stories about the city. Highly recommended. Would definitely do this tour again the next time we are in Philly!
