Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

343 reviews
Leave the kids at home, because this night tour of Philly is strictly R-rated. Be led along the darker streets of the city, hearing stories of hauntings, executions, vampires, and other chilling tales. See the city's beautiful historic buildings lit up at night, and find out facts about them that you won't hear on standard daytime tours.

For people like us who favor impressionist and post-impressionist art this place is paradise. We paid for the individual guided tour which is pricey but for us was well worth it. We loved every minute.

I’ve been to many art galleries and museums domestically. The Barnes is listed amongst the best I’ve visited. Even with covid accommodations it was a terrific experience. The digital assist available to phone users was so great. The interface was easy and made the experience unbelievable. The building itself is a real treasure architecturally.

We visited when it reopened after the Covid shutdown. I felt it is very well maintained and we didn't feel we might be a risk to the Covid in any way. In a very small scale, it might've been like visiting 19 century Salon exhibits in Paris. Paintings are all over the walls. Yes, it does "cheapen" these paintings a bit as there are so many. Barnes has the most paintings by Renior in the world. It also has the most paintings by Cezanne in the world. Enough said! Most rooms are small, but every room has benches to sit on. Dr. Barnes has "interesting" ways of displaying arts and who are to say that's wrong? I thought it was definitely worth $25, but some people could feel it a bit expensive as it is small compared to regular art museums. Most staffs are pleasant and eager to explain. Three thigns we didn't care for. 1. Separate parking fee that we had to go back to the Box Office to pay. 2. Scanning the ticket every time when we enter and leave the room. I understand you scan it upon entering the room every time, but why do you have to scan it every time upon leaving the room every time. That bothers us a lot and actually hindered our appreciation of the paintings. 3. We were looking at some of the paintings at one room and we had to go back to the room we just came out of to "relook" at the paintings we just saw to compare with what we're seeing, yes, against the directed flow. But we were not going against the directed flow room to room and the staff knew it as well, but we're warned not to go back to the room we just passed in two minutes ago. As long as we don't go to room to room in a wrong direction, we should allow to go back to the room we just left at least. But this is once in a lifetime experience!

Beautiful grounds and building; impressive collections of 19th and 20th century artists. A delightfully surprising amount of Cezanne, Renoir, and Monet paintings in amongst many impressive works. Social distancing was enforced by limiting the number of people in the museum at any time of the day and also in each interconnected room. Worth an hour's investment...
