Christmas tree arrives to Philadelphia Museum of Art. Rick Williams reports during Action News at 12 p.m. on November 14, 2017. (WPVI)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Drone 6 was flying above the scene on Tuesday morning as crews installed a 50-foot tree on the museum's east terrace.

The 7,000 pound white fir took eight hours to get here from New York State.

Eventually more than 10,000 lights will be strung across the branches, and the tree will be topped with a star.

Project Manager Tom Corbett says, "It's nice. The best part is the tree lighting, when they say hit the switch, and the lights come on. It's nice knowing we had something to do with it."

The tree lighting takes place on November 22.

You will be able to watch it live here on Action News.
