We did the backpack experience. Our tour guide, Chris, was excellent!! He knew a lot about history and keep my child engaged in the tour and kept it a two-way discussion about history and artifacts throughout the museum.

The Museum was housed in an amazing building that is worth seeing just for that reason alone. The diverse collection of art and artifacts in it, made the trip even more rewarding. Only drawback, only a few rooms were open to the public, would have loved to see even more the castle itself.

it's a beautiful place. Our tour guide, Eva, is friendly and very knowledgeable about the place. we didn't get to walk around much as we came in at the last tour time. I'd love to come back and check out the rest of the grounds.

Great tour. The kid backpack version was great for not only the kids but parents too. The house is so big just wish maybe the tour was 1/2 hour longer

From Our Editors

High on a hill in Bryn Athyn, a vision of old Europe towers over the surrounding greenery. Built as a private residence between 1928 and 1939, the 20th-century castle was constructed in the medieval style, using symbolism that reflects the faith of the Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn family. The building now serves as a museum that houses religious art and relics dating from Babylonian times up to the present. The Museum's permanent and temporary exhibits range from a medieval collection of stained glass that spans the years 1100–1300 to an Egyptian collection that includes an ornate granite libation bowl, which Egyptian priests are said to have used to dump Gatorade on their football coach.
