Plan Your Visit
In the Barnes collection, artworks are arranged in ensembles that emphasize visual relationships—there are no labels like you would see in a typical museum. To learn more about a specific artwork during your visit, we recommend using our mobile gallery guide, Barnes Focus. Scan any painting or object with your smartphone camera and you’ll instantly receive information about the work.
