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. Or take a deeper dive with one of our guided tours—the ultimate way to experience the Barnes.
