Mercer Museum reviews
Hours can be spent here but 2 minimum. 7 floor concrete castle built by eccentric collector of all things ordinary in 1900. The building alone is amazing, the floors, arches, windows, staircases...

I came here by car on a Friday morning in late June 2022. They had a free parking lot and, at the time, had ample parking. I reserved my ticket online and it $10 for students and $15 for adults. From start to finish, the museum took about 40 minutes to complete. The interior looks pretty cool when you walk in and is pretty interesting if you find old farming tools and antiques interesting. I think the content is interesting to look at but is probably only worth $10 instead of $15 for an adult. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way for this place. If you're looking for someone to so in town, you should do a guided tour at the Fonthill Castle instead. The people at the museum is very nice though. I purchased my entry time slot for the wrong date but they still let me in.
definitely a fun experience, stayed there for about 2.5 hours and adult tickets were 15$ as of Feb 2023. so many exhibits and gorgeous architecture. some you can touch and most are behind glass. there is an interactive exhibit for the kids too! overall it's a great museum experience.
