Each attendee will receive an audio guide that provides expert commentary, music and art history references of "The Barnes' legendary collection of post-impressionist and early modern art." After you finish the tour at your leisure, the afternoon is yours to enjoy in Philadelphia.

Snacks are welcome on the bus since lunch time will be late.
