The museum has a large collection of Pre-Raphealite artists that are quite interesting and exellent examples of the school of art. But my favorite exhibition were the illustrations of Howard Pyle and others of that golden age of book illustration.

This museum was founded to honor Howard Pyle after his death over 100 years ago. Now housed in a larger modern building, it has works by many artists, but the wonderful illustrations of Howard Pyle are still the stars of the show.

My best friend is a docent at the museum. I had an opportunity to visit the museum on a tour with her and listened to her explain the stories behind the art. Fabulous place for families.
