Woodmere Art Museum
Woodmere Art Museum Review
This modest-sized museum has trouble drawing a crowd due to its location halfway down the other side of the hill from Chestnut Hill's shops and restaurants. You can spend a pleasant half-hour here, however, taking in the varied modern, 20th-century, and 19th-century art from artists mostly based in the region. Perhaps the best collection is of mid-1900s woodcut and other prints, and the museum has been doing a good job of rotating exhibits and bringing in special exhibitions. There are also some interesting 19th-century Pennsylvania landscapes, and the rooms dedicated to the founder of the museum have spectacularly gaudy vases and furniture from 19th-century Europe. The grounds have varied modern outdoor sculpture.
