We loved the tour! He was such a progressive artist in his fashion. And the staff is kind and informative. A Philadelphia “must do” gem.

The museum gives -in a most attractive way I might say- insight into an artist's and craftsman's life and work. Outright inspiring, very refreshing. It would be nice to have a bit more time to "linger" on the premises after the tour to let everything sink in and develop a feel for the place.
