Philadelphia Museum of Art

This is kind of embarrassing to admit, but I have lived here for almost a year and a half and never visited the art museum. I ride/run past it every week and have run up the steps numerous times, but never been inside.

Megan, Juli and I made plans to spend Monday afternoon at the museum. We met up at Juli’s beforehand and I snapped some photos of her cat Amelia.

The museum is one of the prettiest buildings in Philadelphia.

A slightly out of focus Juli and Megan, but still cute!

They have a huge collection of art, but I really enjoyed all the historic objects.

Eric’s favorite part is the Asian collection, so I took a lot of photos for him!

But I think my favorite was the Pennsylvanian Dutch furniture.

I’m glad I finally made it, and hopefully will go back soon.
