Home to Philly’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, young families who move here enjoy its proximity to beautiful green spaces and a thriving food scene.

Getting acquainted with Fairmount is now easier than ever for new residents and visitors, as surrounding neighborhoods grow commercially and residentially.
