We had registered for a children's program. It started 45 minutes late and handed us a self guided sheet. The museum was a dark mess. Both the children and I did not enjoy our visit.

If you like history, you will like going to Mercer Museum. I have been there several times and never get tired of it. There is so much there that you always find something you missed the first time.

most unusual collection of old tools, equipment, and carriages. Lots of stuff in very tight spaces and a multitude of items hanging in the open atrium area. I gave it 3 rating because it isn't airconditioned and it is not handicap accessible in many areas....More

The Mercer Museum in Doylestown, PA appears at first glance as a castle of sorts. On closer inspection from the outside it is apparent that the entire structure is of poured concrete, which is quite impressive given the time period it was built. The collection...More

I love this museum. It feels magical. There are artifacts hanging everywhere. It's great seeing the tools that used to be used over 150 years ago.

There is an elevator but there are still some steps and narrow walkways. Elevator does not go to lobby so you have a flight of stairs to get to level one where elevator is.
