The Barnes Foundation
Philadelphia is a city filled with culture, and one of the cultural experiences that you must visit in the Barnes Foundation. The Barnes houses a collection of immaculate, priceless art pieces that you’ll have to see to fully enjoy the detail and brilliance of each piece.
Divided into multiple areas, you’ll walk through to look at the entire collection and see the various pieces of work by artists such as Van Gogh, Matisse, and Picasso along with decorative ironwork, African Art, Native American Ceramics, and artifacts from various parts of the world and time.
Throughout each season, The Barnes will have a featured exhibition where you’ll be able to experience the art of a certain era, of a specific style, and/or by a certain artist. Keep an eye on their website to get notified of what exhibitions are currently being shown. We check occasionally to see what is available and that what keeps us coming back for various visits.
I’ll admit that I’m not much of an art buff myself, but there have been various pieces that have intrigued me in a variety of ways. And during my visit to the Barnes Foundation, I found so many pieces that had me staring at them for an extended amount of time wondering about them, and listening to the story that the piece was telling.
While you’re there, also stop by the Garden Restaurant. House in the Barnes, this quaint little restaurant has some amazing food and drinks, and on a warm day, it’s so great to eat your meal out on the terrace.
