New Galleries and Public Spaces!

 This project by the celebrated architect Frank Gehry represents a major milestone in the renovation, reorganization, and interior expansion of the museum’s landmark 1928 building. Join us and discover the stunning transformation that has been four years in the making.

Celebrate our opening with Pay What You Wish admission May 7–10.

New Early American Galleries


Trace the origins of our city’s extraordinary creativity in our brand new Early American Art galleries. The 10,000-square-foot space has been installed to tell the story of how Philadelphia became the young nation’s cultural capital, and how Black, Indigenous, and Latin American artists contributed to the development of American art.

Stroll through spacious, beautifully lit galleries—a highlight of the museum’s extensive renovation project—featuring our unparalleled collections of paintings, ceramics, furniture, glass, silver, and more.

Rodin Museum


After a yearlong closure, we’re happy to welcome you back to the Rodin Museum. A limited number of people are permitted in the building at one time, and access is first-come, first-served; no advance reservations.
