  • Go unguided and move at your own pace. Took me about 1.5 hrs . All ages will enjoy and you really see lots of this castle itself. Parking lot was full sun, hard to find a shady spot to leave dog in car, but found one. Lots of fun.
  • Museum itself is very nice. I believe it was about 36 bucks for the 4 of us. Many very interesting and well done displays. The little gift shop however is an embarrassment. Tried to buy a couple small sticker books for my two kids...$4.22 . Great...I hand over the debit card..."Oh..I'm sorry..we only accept cards for 5 dollars or more." Are you serious?! It was so uncomfortable. Wife digging for a few bucks in her purse while the staff stands there and stares at us and my kids. We ended up having the kids leave them on the counter and left. So you lost your $4.22 sale, embarrassed yourselves and left 2 little kids trying to figure out what the heck happened. Hope that was worth the 30 cent transaction fee you saved yourselves.
  • The quilt exhibit alone was worth the trip. The rest of the museum is also a great experience. Did not have time for the castle, 🏰 but will definitely get back for that
  • The Mercer Museum is unlike any other museum you've seen. It is unique and mind-blowing to see what one man had collected. You will gain an unbelieve visiotheopportunity as what life was like and how tradesman at the turn of the century made all the goods and products we use today before the industrial revolution. Don't miss out on this wonder trip back in time, You'll have an entirely new appreciation for what we have available to us today.
  • So cool and beautiful! The most unique museum I've ever been to! However if you go in the winter or summer dress appropriately/be prepared bc it doesn't have heat or ac bc it's an all cement. I went in December when it was freezing and luckily I read reviews before going so we dressed warm with hand and feet warmers and it was so worth it!
