Trip Report Barnes Collection

Jump to last reply

We just spent 10 days in NYC and went to Philadelphia for a few days. Stayed with a friend who had reserved tickets for us for the Barnes Collection. The collection is a must for anyone interested in art, although I am not crazy about the modern building that encases the reproduction of the original rooms. I would even consider visiting it on a day trip from NYC, taking a Bolt bus (reservations recommended) from 34th St. & 8th Ave. in the morning and coming back early in the evening.

If staying in Philadelphia, I recommend Scannichio's Restaurant (2500South Broad St.) for a good and relatively inexpensive meal ($161 for three appetizers, 3 main courses, three desserts, including tip); bring your own wine or beer.
