New Feature!



Since its controversial move to downtown Philadelphia, the iconic art museum can be enjoyed in the nation's first LEED-gold certified institution of its kind -- without a drive to the suburbs. Curators have managed to arrange all of the late Dr. Alfred Barnes' Impressionist-era paintings and African masks and sculptures in the exact same position as he did in the mansion that formerly housed his landmark collection, and now there's plenty more space for education, events, exhibitions and relaxation.
