·         Check the tags for special washing instructions. Most clothes are machine washable, but always check the tag for further instructions.

The Museum of Art in Philadelphia is one of the country's largest museums. Its collection of some 300,000 works of art covers diverse artistic areas. The works on display include photographs, paintings, tapestry, carpets, sculpture, armory, ceramics and furniture. Some of the two hundred galleries even include complete historic sites such as a Buddhist temple. Its paintings collection includes works from renowned artists like Picasso, Van Gogh, Rubens and Renoir. The Museum is located on a hill at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, providing a perfect vista for this wide boulevard.

The origins of the museum go back to the Centennial Exposition of 1876. It was held at Fairmount Park, where a permanent exposition hall was built for the exposition's art gallery. The building, known as Memorial Hall was designed by Hermann Schwarzmann. It was built between 1874 and 1876 in the popular Beaux-Arts style. The glass-domed building is still one of the most beautiful in Philadelphia.

The museum's collection expanded rapidly and by the end of the nineteenth century Memorial Hall had become too small. In 1907 the decision was made to build a new museum on a hill known as Faire Mount, at the end of the recently completed Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The building, designed by Horace Trumbauer, Julian Abele, Clark Zantzinger and Charles Borie, was inspired by Greek temples. An imposing flight of stairs leads to an open court bordered by three connected neoclassical temples.
