Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts

PAFA statue

The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA) is located on Broad Street, just a few blocks north of City Hall.  PAFA is both an art school and a museum, a rare combination. The original Historic Landmark Building is a magnificent structure designed by Frank Furness. The second, newer Hamilton building houses the school as well as gallery space.

Why Robin likes it:
I love the architecture and design of the building, with its amazing attention to detail in the ceiling, stairways, arches, and walls.  There are paintings, sculptures, and contemporary works of all fine art media. Knowledgeable docents, and something new every time you visit.
