The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) is two venues in one. The elegant Gothic revival architecture of the Historic Landmark Building and the spacious, contemporary Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building offer the perfect backdrop to dine and dance in the galleries, surrounded by one of the best collections of American art in the world.
Located directly across from the Pennsylvania Convention Center, PAFA is the starting point of Philadelphia's celebrated Museum Mile intersecting the Avenue of the Arts. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will guide you throughout the entire planning process to ensure a memorable event for you and your guests.
