One of our favorite museums. A wonderful collection with great rotating shows.
Surprisingly high end permanent collection for a museum outside of a major city. Changing visiting exhibits, classes, special tours & more. Well worth a visit.

“This "castle" is as fascinating as the man who built it, Henry Mercer. Well worth the time to see his former residence that is one of a kind. Especially spectacular is their Christmas decorations that occur every year in that holiday season.”

“Henry Mercer had the vision to collect the tools that built America. He was likely viewed as quite an eccentric when he began his quest, but thanks to him he preserved artifacts and tools that you will only read about in history books. The building itself is just as interesting as the collection and as a child, this was one of my favorite places. It's a wonderland for kids to explore. My father had antique printing presses that he used to make our family Christmas cards on every year and I am proud that one of his presses is in their permanent collection.”

The beautiful and iconic Bucks County stone farmhouse contains a rich, intact collection from the extraordinary (the typewriter on which she wrote The Good Earth) to the ordinary (a closet full of board games her family played). The grounds of the estate also contain Pearl S. Buck’s gravesite, greenhouse, award-winning gardens, Cultural Center, the Estate Pavilion (which houses special events and weddings), and the Welcome Center (which contains the International Gift Shop, the Exhibit Gallery, and the offices of Pearl S. Buck International). "”
