  • A really good art/sculpture museum. The Pennsylvania Impressionism selections are unbeatable and the Nakashima Reading Room is UNMISSABLE.  more »
  • My husband and I got married at the Michener and couldn't be more thrilled with the experience. We had the full run of the museum. Guests could grab a drink in the sculpture garden, dance in the glass...  more »
  • This is a small but excellent collection. It is also well interpreted, so that you really come away with an understanding of regional art movements. The docents are great.  more »

  • My husband's group, the Back Bench Boys, sang here yesterday, along with the Tiller sisters. They have sung here 3 or 4 times, and I always enjoy it. The art and other items on display are awesome!
  • Very nice trip. My first visit. Everyone pleasant and informative. Will definitely return to investigate more.
  • A beautiful County art museum that changes the exhibits routinely. Features a lot of local historical artist, and there were many famous ones, that keeps the exhibits fresh. They offer children and adult art classes which to me seem a little pricey compared to offerings from other organizations in the area. My wife and I make 2-3 trips a year to see the exhibits or lectures from visiting artists. Best to get on the event mailing list as that is the easy way to keep abreast of current events.
  • Remarkable permanent collection. Also enjoyed the Sam Maitin prints exhibition.
  • Come here after you've visited the Mercer museum. It's a bit small, but quite interesting.
