Philadelphia Art Museum Map

Photo by R. Kennedy for Visit Philadelphia™If you’ve been hard-pressed to find even the slightest bit of motivation to hop on your bike during these colder months, here’s something that might get you back in the saddle: Museum Without Walls’ Outdoor Sculpture Bike Map.

Museum Without Walls is a program of the Art Association for Public Art, and this awesome map they’ve created offers two routes for bikers to explore Philly’s outdoor sculptures. Both loops take you past at least 18 outdoor sculptures, some dating all the way back to the 1870s, along with great views, like the view across the river from Laurel Hill Cemetery. Plus, along the way, you can hear all about the history of many of the sculptures you’re seeing by listening to the free Museum Without Walls audio. How cool is that?

You can opt for the four-mile loop or the 10-mile loop, both of which start right around the Art Museum. The four-mile loop kicks off at the Rocky statue, then takes riders up Martin Luther King Junior Drive and around the Horticulture Center, then back down to the start. The 10-mile loop goes up Kelly Drive, across Falls Bridge, then back down Martin Luther King Junior Drive, over to Belmont Mansion and back down to the Art Museum.

Who else thinks this outdoor sculpture bike tour could just make for the most impressive (and cheap) first date, like, ever? You can learn more about the Museum Without Walls program and check out the bike map here.
