We deiced on the self-guided Open House to have flexibility and we found the museum/house to be so interesting that we wish we had done a personal tour to get more of an opportunity to get an overview and then ask questions! Still really enjoyed it!

This was my first visit to the Esherick Museum. I first saw his work at The Philadelphia Museum of Art. I was excited to know this museum was in my backyard. His work is amazing. The docents were very knowledgeable and very welcoming. $12.00 was a nominal price for this incredible work of art.
