Philadelphia: A Guide To The Museum Corridor
Philly is very walkable and has great museums. Here's a guide for a stroll along the historic Benjamin Franklin Parkway!
This walking tour of the museum corridor is 1.5 miles long.
Start at City Hall (1400 JFK Blvd) . This stunningly ornate building is an architectural treasure!
1
Continue to Love Park, located at 15th and JFK Blv. Then walk in the NW direction on Benjamin Franklin Parkway to the Amor sign in Logan Square.
2
The path is filled with public art and sculptures. Franklin Institute Science Museum is located at 20th Street.
3
Continue NW on the parkway to The Barnes Foundation, an extraordinary museum with exhibits of impressionism.
4
The next building is The Rodin Museum. It has the largest collection of Auguste Rodin's sculptures outside of Paris, France.
5
The last large building on the left is The Philadelphia Museum of Art. Stop to see the statute of Rocky Balboa.
6
Run up the "Rocky Stairs" if you dare. At the top, you can step into Rocky's footprints and have your moment of victory. "Yo Adrian, I did it!" 😊
7
From here, you'll have sweeping views of the Washington Monument Fountain and the city of Brotherly Love!

TIP: If you plan to tour the Museum of Art, I recommend a taxi or an Uber in lieu of the 30 minute walk, it's massive! πŸ˜ŠπŸšΆπŸ½β€β™€οΈ
