Information on getting to the museum is at their website, www.barnesfoundation.org. By far the easiest way is by car, but a bus going to City Line Avenue would let you off about a 6- to 8-block walk from the museum. Parking at the museum is most convenient, but is $10. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED for both parking and admission and should be made about one month in advance. They can be made online. Block out 2-3 hours and try and take each room slowly.
You can easily go into museum coma; there were so many Renoirs that, by the end, they started to blur. The pictures that stayed with me were the stranger ones - a hallucinatory Odilon Redon and several provocatively naïve Henri Rousseaus. There are also pleasant gardens worth a stroll. If you have any extra time in Philadelphia to go beyond the Center City attractions, this is not to be missed.
