First, I know very little about art. But I do know about Rocky. Right before you enter the museum, you see a little Rocky statue-don't care how cliche it is, you gotta pose with it. The stairs are magnificent and at the top you get...More

I have been to Philly many times but this is my first time at the museum. The exhibits were great, especially the fashion exhibit. The staff was very friendly.
