Explore the galleries of The Barnes Foundation, a museum that is home to hundreds of works by Renoir, Cézanne and Matisse, Picasso (and many, many other renowned artists), at no cost at all on the first Sunday of each month.
Thanks to PECO and the Barnes, guests are invited into the museum for free on the first Sunday, including this Sunday, October 6.
First Sunday tickets grant attendees access to the main collection, special exhibitions and special programming.
This Sunday, experience programs exploring Hispanic culture, including a conversation with such artists as photographer Obed Arango Hisijara, printmaker José Ortiz-Pagán, and painter Marta Sanchez, as well as salsa dancing and music from Artistas y Músicos Latino Americanos.
To snag your free tickets to the Barnes Foundation, head to the museum on the first Sunday of the month beginning at 9 a.m. and pick up your desired ticket.
Take note, free tickets are not available online or in advance, tickets are available only on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Also, plan accordingly, the Barnes Foundation offers a maximum of two adult tickets and two children tickets per transaction.
The earlier you get there the better — tickets are sure to run out.
