  • Loved this place! We bought tickets online beforehand and were able to go right in. Such a cool place, the different pieces of art inside are amazing and crazy! We were in Philly for the weekend and definitely appreciated being able to see this artistic spot.
  • The mosaics themselves were impressively weird. Obviously a lot of work went into it. But not worth the admission price, IMO. Understandably, the staff got on people’s cases for leaning against the walls or touching things. If you’re looking for photos, just go around the corner and into the alleyway. And then you can lean/pose all ya want.
