Barnes Foundation

Everything about the museum was spectacular, including the price...
...now that may seem steep, but it was worth it...

{From the musical Barnum}

I finally got a chance to see the Barnes Foundation whilst in Philly.

The museum recently relocated from the Main Line to the city and is a recreation of the amazing collection of Albert Barnes. Barnes was a very wealthy chemist who amassed an impressive collection of art.

The museum is arranged as his private collection was when it was at his mansion and affords visitors with up close looks at the works of Renoir, Monet, Manet, Matisse, Modigliani, Klee, Cezanne, Picasso, and so many more!

While no pictures were allowed in the galleries, the outside of the museum was a stunning work of art unto itself!

I highly recommend if you're even in Center City!

LOL. When you said the price was spectacular and only had outside shots, I thought you didn't go in. I'm happy that you went in and got to see the collection.

Very sleek and modern looking building. - I hate it though when musuems charge outrageous prices. (I never go in if I can't afford it) and I also hate it when they don't allow photos inside. - I'm glad you enjoyed the museum though.
