Glencairn Museum is a terrific little gem that was right in our backyard for years that we knew very little about. Now that we have discovered it, we will spread the word and we will definitely be back for another visit. What a beautiful and peaceful place.

I wish the hi-lights tour included the Native American collection.

What You'll Get


Art and artifacts portray the past more accurately than a grandpa and more truthfully than Genghis Khan’s autobiography. Scrutinize the past with today’s Groupon to Glencairn Museum in Bryn Athyn. Guided highlights tours take place Monday–Friday at 2:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 1 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 3 p.m. Choose between the following options:

  • For $8, you get two adult tour passes (up to a $16 value).
  • For $15, you get four adult tour passes (up to a $32 value).<p>

Located in the Bryn Athyn Historic District, which was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 2008, the Roman-style Glencairn Museum houses an edifying collection of religious artifacts from the dawn of human history through the modern era. A 15-minute Omni award–winning orientation video is followed by an elevator ride up the museum’s tower, affording guests beautiful views of downtown Bryn Athyn, the Philadelphia skyline, and disoriented Icaruses. Guides lead their charges through such diverse galleries as the Egyptian collection, featuring a giant stone head from a priest’s statue, and the medieval collection, which includes hundreds of examples of French stained-glass work. Tours also swing through the former residence’s opulent living areas, including the master bedroom, family chapel, and gold-doubloon-filled swimming pool.

Though Glencairn Museum offers discounted senior tickets, today’s Groupon still offers the best deal for most customers.

About Glencairn Museum


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.
