PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Despite all of the road closures and traffic restrictions from Made in America, the Philadelphia Museum of Art is still accessible and open.

The museum’s president Gail Harrity says people can enter through the west entrance.

“Vehicular traffic can come in on Kelly Drive and enter Water Works Drive, right into the museum’s parking garage,” Harrity explains.

She’s hoping for a strong finish to the “Arcadia” exhibition.

“Visitation has continued to be very strong, we hope that will remain over the weekend. It’s the final weekend of this acclaimed exhibition,” Harrity says.

She also hopes that a good number of concert-goers will stop by the museum while they’re in the neighborhood.
