Description

The Philadelphia Museum of Art is one of the largest art museums in the United States, with about 240,000 exhibits. The Pennsylvania Museum of Art (which it was called until 1938) was organized in connection with the 1876 World's Fair in Philadelphia, marking the centenary of the Declaration of Independence. The center of the celebrations was the so-called Bozar Memorial Hall, which at the end of the exhibition was transferred to a museum exposition that was not yet rich. In 1919, by decision of the city authorities, the construction of a new neoclassical museum building in the Fairmount Quarter began. Masons took an active part in laying the museum building and financing its construction. In 1928, the new building (popularly known as the “Great Greek Garage”) received its first visitors. In front of the museum is Eakins Oval, a small square named after Philadelphia's most famous artist. In the middle, there is an equestrian monument to J. Washington (1897). Not far from the entrance to the museum, there is a monument to Rocky Balboa: all films about this hero feature the museum's outdoor staircase.
