My wife and I visited the museum in early March 2018. We spent over an hour at this wonderful museum. It had 3 floors to explore. We found it very engrossing and very interesting exploring the entire museum. A little gem in the historic district....More

Very odd collection, which hasn't edited out the less than truthful 'heroes' (e.g., what is Greg Mortenson doing on your walls?). The argument for the 'separation of church and state' is convoluted. I understand the owner hosts an annual glass art auction to support the...More

This museum may not get as much attention as the "bigger" attractions in Philly but it is well worth a visit. It is engaging, inspirational and very modern. The underlying message feels even more relevant in today's political/social climate and I think both kids and...More
