American Art in Philadelphia Small-group Tour
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
- Second Bank U.S. Portrait Gallery: An extensive collection of American art from the 18th and 19th centuries inside the Greek Revival Second Bank building, opened in 1816 by president James Madison.
- Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts: Check out pieces by well-known painters and printers like Frank W. Benson and Childe Hassam, in an early 19th-century gallery that also includes a modern art section.
- More than a guide: Your experience is led by a seasoned historian or scholar who has spent years learning about the city of Brotherly Love; in a group of six or smaller, you can freely interact with these experts.
Please meet at the arch of the side entrance to Pennsylvania Hospital's Medical Practices Building, located on 8th Street between Pine and Spruce Streets. The side entrance is just across from where Delancey Street dead ends into 8th Street.
As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind. In need of retail therapy after your tour? Your guide can advise you where to go in search of that "must have" souvenir to take home. Be sure to have some local currency and a backpack for all your great buys.
