The history of world religions comes to life through this museum's extensive collection of art and artifacts from different cultures and time periods. Glencairn was once the home of Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn. It was built between 1928 and 1939. Glencairn became a museum after the death of Mildred Pitcairn in 1979. Let our guides show you the best the Museum has to offer by taking our Highlights Tour. Tours leave regularly Tuesdays through Fridays at 2:30 pm and weekends at 1:00, 2:30 and 3:00 pm. The "Time Travelers" family backpack tour is at 1:45 pm on weekends. The Museum is only accessible through guided tours, with the exception of our two Festival Days. You can see all of the galleries through a self-guided tour during those events. Guided tours have a maximum of twelve people per tour. Reservations are strongly recommended. The Museum's 1st floor, including the Great Hall, Upper Hall, and Bird Room, is open weekends FREE of charge, from 1:00-4:30 pm. A FREE cell phone tour of Glencairn's exterior and 1st floor is also available. Please join us this weekend for FREE Coffee in the Castle!
We visited last week and was pleasantly surprised with the beautiful mansion now converted into a museum. It has beautiful stain glass windows that has been built on site and are replica of stain glass windows from European Churches. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.
The variety of artifacts and attention to details are impeccable. It also houses the pieces collected by the family from Egypt , Greece and other parts of the world.
Definitely worth the time in the beautiful surrounding !!!
Will be definitely going back during their Fall festival for various activities and special tours.

The winery is really beautifully done, with lush flora everywhere. They have invested well in the property and made it a place to admire the charming atmosphere.
The problem is it serves less than charming wine, witch is kind of why you would go to a winery in the first place, Worth a visit to see, but my guess is you won't be coming back for the libations...

Incredible - and free- humongous play structure for kids and big kids at heart alike. Massive four story structure with two giant slides, climbing galore, a place to picnic and tons to see/explore. Little kids have a nearby area, but be prepared to chase them as they chase the older ones. Don't come when too hot (no shade) but a great place to visit w kids in Bucks County.

Took a group of college basketball players here to pass the time on a Monday night. Even after spending 2 days visiting NYC, many of them said this was their favorite part of the trip. The lights were awesome and the market at the end of the show was just as enjoyable. The team loved getting ice cream, hot chocolate, etc and sitting around the fire and singing Christmas songs

Crooked eye's staff are all really friendly. We shared two flights and the beer selection is good and varied. They have growlers and crowlers for sale too. Great spot, albeit a little hard to find tucked behind a tattoo shop. There's a deli next door, a wawa and a vegan restaurant are close by too, so you can grab food to bring with you.

I frequent the park often. There are no many well maintained trails. There are paved trails and some paths through the woods. The park has horse trails too. Trails are well marked. There are often events like a craft show in the fall, yoga, and fund raiser races. There is Frisbee golf and picnic areas. You take varies loops so can walk a mile, or 10 or more.

Churchville Nature Center has always been on the cutting edge of providing unique outdoor and nature related programs. Kids camps from early ages until preteen ages for several seasons, eco sports and trips to other parts of the Americas, an Award winning recreation of and educational program about the Leni Lenape native Americans who lived in this area, complete with a reconstructed village, trails, weekly and free bird watching walks, and now, an amazing Butterfly House that not only lets you walk amongst freely flying butterflies that live in Easten Pennsylvania, but also rears them from eggs and releases them, all based on the latest science. And almost 99 percent of everything is fine by volunteers! This is not a state or national parks folks...this is a community, County owned property in the middle of development! But it is responsible for starting many children of all ages onto a rewarding pathway in appreciating and loving and protecting nature. And along the way, several of thise folks who met here became partners in life. Who can argue with love in all of its forms? It is a wonderful plac that sometimes sparks with pure magic. They have special events, programming, targeted ecological trips, kid stuff, you name it!the trails are terrific, and it sits in the edge of a reservoir, so the forested trails empty at that shore. And th newly expanded building is now LEED -certified . You need to experience the place in all of its moods...quiet, bustling, cold, hot, sunny, rainy, with few people and with many coming together for some event. A great way to be in nature in the suburbs, for all ages.

Cairnwood Estate, now a National Landmark,is located in Historic Bryn Athyn, 16 miles from center city Philadelphia and shares it’s grounds with the highly acclaimed Gothic and Romanesque landmarks, the Glencairn Museum and the Bryn Athyn Cathedral.Enjoy the story of American Industrialist John Pitcairn. View our award winning video, visit the gift shop, Garden House, Carriage House, and take a stroll in our garden.
We have been here several times over the years for weddings and large party events. This house is very historic and great for hosting a large group of people. Catering services provide high quality food. Grounds are well maintained and next door is the Glencairn Museum and Bryn Athyn Cathedral both worth a visit.
