The Philadelphia Museum of Art is a cultural institution that is located in Philadelphia. Founded for the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, the museum has a rich history. The building was finished in 1928 on the hill of Fairmount, northwest of Benjamin Franklin Parkway. 

This museum has been open for over one hundred years. It's one of the oldest in the United States. It was founded by a group of art collectors who sought to collect works of art from different periods. The original museum was built in 1787, but the Philadelphia community was eager to build a new museum. The city began looking for a suitable site for a new museum around the turn of the century. It finally found its location in the Center City. Now it is a thriving international city.

The museum has expanded its space since its opening. The former Fidelity Mutual Life Insurance Company building, across the parkway, was demolished and replaced by the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Building. The new addition features contemporary art galleries, costumes galleries, and print galleries. In addition to its exhibitions, the Perelman Building also contains a library and study centers. The museum is one of the top tourist destinations in the city.
