PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The Philadelphia Museum of Art will be free and open to the public on Wednesday, in honor of “International Museums Day.”

All the various facilities operated by the art museum — the main building at the head of the Parkway (above) and the nearby Perelman building, the Rodin Museum, and the Cedar Grove and Mount Pleasant Houses in Fairmount Park Houses — will be free and open to the public from 10am to 5pm on Wednesday in honor of International Museums Day, an annual day that works to make the public aware of the important role museums play in society.

The theme of Museums Day this year is “Museum and Memory.”

“Every museum, but particularly the Philadelphia Museum of Art, has an extraordinary collection of works of art, and each work of art tells a story,” says Gail Harrity, president and chief operating officer of the Museum of Art.
