Handy map of Center City Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is in the upper left pocket. A wonderful walking city, with plenty of mass transit options included. I lived in the Washington Square area for a year, back in the 1990s. Loved it!

There's only one really good art museum in New Orleans. I've been a number of times but it's been a while. I need to get back to it, see what is new.

It's been so long since I have been to a museum (well, except the one I work at, of course). Time for me to descend upon an art museum!
