Ready for a deal, Philadelphia?
This Thursday, the Philadelphia Museum of Art swings open its doors and invites the public in for free. That’s right, on Thursday, May 18 score free admission to the Philadelphia Museum of Art thanks to the museum’s participation in International Museum Day.
International Museum Day, presented by the International Council of Museums, is a day of special events and free admission at museums across the world.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 18, museum-goers can score free admission to the main building at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the adjacent Perelman Building and the Rodin Museum.
Both the special exhibitions and the permanent collection throughout the museum will be open to International-Museum-Day guests. Beyond art browsing, guests can also enjoy music, crafts and special tours of the museums.
In addition to the museum, Cedar Grove (one of the Historic Homes of Fairmount Park) offers free admission this Thursday, too. The beautiful Cedar Grove was a private residence that was built in 1748-1750 and is now home to special tours and events throughout the year.
Be sure to take full advantage of this deal-fueled day in Philadelphia.
