As promised, the mother+daughter summer adventure series continued with the Philadelphia Museum of Art yesterday. I forgot how absolutely breathtaking this building is. Literally. Sprinting up the stairs in true Rocky form is not an easy feat, even for a 22-year-old, but it was worth it. My mom got to see her Sunflowers and I got to make more memories with my mom — one of the few benefits of unemployment in my post-grad life.
For you out of towners, here’s an insider’s tip: every first Sunday of the month is ‘pay what you wish’ day at the Museum. Unfortunately, the special exhibition (currently featuring Renoir) is not part of the deal and cost us a pretty penny.
If you plan to hit up other Philly hotspots (i.e. the Philadelphia Zoo, Penn’s Landing, etc.), I would recommend taking the Philly Phlash. It’s quick, easy and for only $2 a ride/$5 all day pass/$10 family pass, it’s the affordable way to see the city.
Best of luck with your own Philly adventure!
