I live on the outskirts of Philadelphia. I am trying to plan a trip to visit the area a little more than usual. I am specifically looking for good street art, murals, public arts, and maybe some museums. Anything helps.

I live near Philly as well. Take the train in, go see the Rodin Museum , THE Museum, the Barnes Collection (if your pockets are deep enough), the Franklin Institute (I think that they have an exhibit on Vatican artifacts at the moment; they always have great things like that). The Penn Museum is cool; it's by 30th Street Station on the other side of the river.

As for street art, just walk around, it's everywhere, but South Street is especially famous for it. The Old Town is also neat to visit, and if you like to eat out I enjoy the Continental Mid-Town and the Dandelion, both on 18th street just north of Rittenhouse Square, Zento in the Old City, and the Moshulu, on an old sailing ship by Penn's Landing.
