Fascinating visit. I had no idea that Je ray Mercer created the mosaics in the pa state capital. Very cool. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. more »
There is so much to see and absorb at the Mercer Museum. The six stories of collections takes some time to go through. If you enjoy history and appreciate how things were done in the past, you will.... more »
Self guided museum for only fifteen dollars. Everything was pretty cool to see and there was a lot more than expected. I loved going through the different levels and it didn’t feel like we traveled up seven floors but we got all the way to the top and wished there was more!They currently have a space exhibit which was super interesting. If you’re bringing kids, they have this interactive learning section where they can learn how things work. Things like how cars drive, planes fly, hovercrafts hover, etc. Definitely also stop by Fonthill castle which is only about a mile away. Super cool to check out from the outside if you don’t want to do the guided inside tour. I think the ticket for that tour is also fifteen dollars but you can save and pay twenty six if you do both places.
Cool museum. we went to the making an astronaut exhibit with my 3 and 7 year old. The museum person babysitting the exhibit was a little overzealous and took all the fun out of the exhibit. Although it is labeled a kid friendly exhibit, I think someone that understands kids should be watching the exhibit. It felt like the guy didn’t want us to touch any of his toys.
