Home to Philadelphia’s truly world-class museums, Fairmount is synonymous with fine art — but art is far from the only draw for this northern neighbor to Center City.
Often referred to as the “Art Museum Area” because of its walking-distance access to Philadelphia Museum of Art, Franklin Institute, Rodin Museum and Barnes Foundation, Fairmount possesses a distinct personality that thrives independent of those many hallowed halls.
Just outside the hustle and bustle, people who move here enjoy its proximity to beautiful green spaces and a thriving food scene. Located within the vicinity to Kelly Drive, this active area is great for running, biking, and more.
Becoming acclimated with Fairmount is now easier than ever for new residents and visitors, as surrounding neighborhoods grow commercially and residentially.
