Welcome! We recommend that you purchase your tickets in advance of your visit to ensure that your preferred date and time are available.

The rooms in the Collection Gallery are small, requiring us to limit the number of people in the gallery at one time. Your entry will be scheduled for a specific time, but you may stay and enjoy the collection until we close.

Our daily highlights tours are hour-long explorations of the masterworks and Dr. Barnes’s display methods, guided by expertly trained docents. Look for the blue triangle to check tour availability.

We offer a limited number of early access premium tickets; get in before the galleries open to the public. (9 am Saturday and Sunday).        

To book your tickets by phone, call 215-278-7200 between 10am and 4pm daily.  Be advised weekends experience high call volumes.

To book a group of 15 or more, contact Group Sales by clicking here.

International guests who are experiencing problems with online ordering, please email for tickets.

We're sorry - online booking is only supported in newer browsers than the one you are using. Please try a different browser or call our booking line on 866.849.7056.
