Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Building
Fashion and modern design highlight the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s first major expansion
Enthusiasts of fashion and modern design will relish a visit to the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Building, the first major expansion of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Located across from the Museum’s main building and featuring a beautifully preserved Art Deco façade, the Perelman Building holds the museum’s vast costume and textile collection. Also on display are photographs, modern and contemporary designs and several pieces from the Museum’s private collections.
With approximately 2,000 square feet of gallery space, the Perelman Building features a glass-walled study gallery providing access to the esteemed costume and textile collection, which includes some 30,000 pieces.
Be sure to check out the Gallery Café for a snack, or better, a light lunch. The space is sleek and the fare is tasty.
