The docents are great. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. It’s such an incredible space create by Wharton that one can miss so much without the help of someone that understands what’s going on. It’s fun and my 6 year old loved it. Lots of cool stuff to see for everyone

The museum is very interesting and well done, because it is completely full of Whartons work. The docents are just as good because of their vast knowledge of the Whartons work and how his work was so innovative. The combination of the museums and docents makes for a great visiting experience.
