For decades, the iconic art collection assembled by Dr. Albert Barnes was displayed at his summer estate, turned museum and arboretum, in Merion, Pennsylvania. Now relocated along Philadelphia’s Museum Mile, the priceless collection is accessible to the public like never before. Conceived as a gallery within a garden and a garden within a gallery, the design honors the original Barnes estate and provides visitors with a highly personal and contemplative experience.
