If you like or love castles, medieval or anything like that...this tour is a must. The guided tour is only for certain areas of the museum. Several times a year they let you come in and go through the entire museum, top to bottom, at your own pace. One of those times is coming up in April. There is so much to see and it is so beautiful. The tour guides were very nice and knowledgable. The greeters were very nice also. I was ready to go back before we even walked out of the building.

It's a great trip! Lots of fun and educational. I went with my four kids ranging from 2-12 and they all loved it.

Make sure to book your tour ahead of time. There are only 12 people allowed per tour, which is the perfect size for touring this museum. We will go back in the spring so that we can really tour the grounds as well. Everyone was so friendly, made the whole trip really worth it!

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 community's earliest inhabitants. 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.
