Much of the area directly around the Art Museum is closed off. Security is tight, resembling an Eagles game with restrictions on what you can bring.

Philadelphia Police put up a safety perimeter.

“We do have multiple aspects of both state, federal that work along with us – we will be prepared and do everything we can to make us less of a target for anything like that,” Chief Inspector Frank Vanore said.

Gates open at noon Saturday.
