The Mercer Museum is a 7-story history museum of every-day life in America during the 18th and 19th centuries. Designed and built by Dr. Henry Chapman Mercer, the Mercer Museum is reminiscent of a castle, inside and out. It was completed in 1916.
Adjacent to the museum is the lovely Elkins Gallery, where off-season receptions are held. Designed by well-known Philadelphia architect Horace Trumbauer, the Elkins Gallery is a Georgian style room that displays a fine collection of Bucks County paintings and boasts a vintage baby grand piano and two fireplaces. Along with the Mercer Museum, it is a National Historic Landmark.
Superb photo opportunities abound – outside on the Mercer Museum grounds and inside among thousands of vintage artifacts.
