  • This museum is huge and so beautiful, both inside and outside. The design of each floor is unique. There is so much history in this place. Each room is a separate gallery, though a lot of them are not open normally. The view from the top is so amazing! Definitely worth the trip!
  • This castle nearly 100 years old was the residence of the Pitcarin family until the 1970s. Limited open hours. Beautiful grounds.
  • Even if you never go inside, it's worth seeing. This place is absolutely breathtaking. From start to finish you're given a really thorough tour that never feels rushed or boring. They're small, personal groups and have I mentioned how gorgeous the place is?! It is. But let me tell you something, when you're at the tip top of that place looking at the landscapes in front of you, you'll just be at a loss for words. We sadly had to move out of PA before we could experience Christmas at Glencairn, we were really looking forward to that! Go, spend the day, you'll love it,
  • Glencairn is a great place to go and be exposed to artifacts from across the world and across centuries. They have seasonal programs and festival days. I recommend becoming a member to fully benefit from all of the offerings at Glencairn. One of the best places to go north of Philadelphia for educational fun.
  • Fantastic place to visit. Would be nice to have it mapped inside by google to include the infrastructure (kitchen, garage and house staff areas) Inside view could enhance the physical visit.
