PAFA's Historic Landmark Building interior

Join us for a Saturday morning walkthrough of PAFA's Historic Landmark Building. From design competition to opening day, the story of this iconic building is a story of industrial innovation, artistic excellence, and civic engagement, all inscribed in the stone and paint of America’s first museum building. Led by Lori Waselchuk, Assistant Director of Public Programs, this tour offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the building that launched America onto the world art stage came together and remains active as a maker-space almost 150 years later.
