AOL Travel Editor’s Review

If this building looks familiar, that’s because it probably is. Ascending the 72 steps to the museum’s upper terrace, many patrons are inspired to (try to) run the distance a la “Rocky,” with the “Eye of the Tiger” running through their minds. But while a scrappy Philadelphia movie icon may have made the building famous, what’s inside draws a slightly different kind of crowd. One of the largest museums in the United States, work by the heavy-hitters of the art world, including Van Gogh and Monet, line the walls, and a hall of armor gives visitors the chance to learn about another kind of contender. If you’re looking to dodge a blow to your wallet, head to the museum on the first Sunday of the month, when the admission is pay what you wish.
