I have visited the museum many times and it never disappoints. Every time I see something new and learn something new. Great team at the museum and such a jewel so close to Philadelphia.

This is the third time I have visited and this was the best visit yet as our docent was superb. He went into greater detail than any of the previous docents and it made the tour even more interesting. My son had come with me because he likes to work with different mediums and found the tour very interesting and said he would like to go back for the architectural tour.
