Philadelphia is a city that’s home to both art and history. Few places showcase the connection between the two like the Barnes Foundation. This world-class museum houses a large collection of Modern paintings and Post-Impressionist masterpieces from artists like Renoir, Cezanne and Picasso.
Travelers can wander the galleries filled with iconic works and tour the collection of smaller rooms that are reflective of the original Barnes estate. The museum also offers travelers easy access to the nearby park and the city’s waterfront, which is the perfect place for an evening skyline stroll.

Admission is $22 for adults on weekdays and $25 on weekends. The first Sunday of every month is free to visitors. The foundation has extended hours, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. on the first Friday of each month. Travelers can take the SEPTA or the 7, 32, 33, 38 or 48 bus routes.
