795 Ridge Road, Telford, PA 18969

This Broadway hit later became a successful film starring Walter Matthau, Ingrid Bergman, and Goldie Hawn.

New this year will be children’s tours every Saturday at 11:00 a.m. Children have always enjoyed Wharton’s sense of play in ways that adults are often too serious to appreciate. With the exception of school tours, children have been forced to put up with all of the “boring stuff” that adults want from a tour instead of getting to enjoy the fun that the Museum has to offer. The children’s tours will be full of hands-on activities geared towards Wharton’s younger fans ages 5-12. Admission will be $6 for all visitors on these tours, but all adults must be accompanied by a child. Please call for reservations – space is limited. 610-644-5822
