A very faithful accumulation of artifacts dating from the 19th and 18th centuries. The exhibit focuses upon Bucks County but pertains to life anywhere in the US during that time. The building itself is an amazing labyrinth that has a feel of a castle once...More

Really cool exhibits for kids, they change every couple of months. The lego one was my favorite. Great place to have a wedding.

Very unique and complete collection of our history of tools. From old wagons, boats, hand tools and almost anything you can imagine our ancestors used for any type of business or chore. I recommend you visit the Mercer tile museum first so you get a...More

There is an elevator but there are still some steps and narrow walkways. Elevator does not go to lobby so you have a flight of stairs to get to level one where elevator is.
