Glencairn Museum

The history of world religions comes to life through this museum's extensive collection of art and artifacts from different cultures and time periods. Glencairn was once the home of Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn. It was built between 1928 and 1939. Glencairn became a museum after the death of Mildred Pitcairn in 1979. Let our guides show you the best the Museum has to offer by taking our Highlights Tour. Tours leave regularly Tuesdays through Fridays at 2:30 pm and weekends at 1:00, 2:30 and 3:00 pm. The "Time Travelers" family backpack tour is at 1:45 pm on weekends. The Museum is only accessible through guided tours, with the exception of our two Festival Days. You can see all of the galleries through a self-guided tour during those events. Guided tours have a maximum of twelve people per tour. Reservations are strongly recommended. The Museum's 1st floor, including the Great Hall, Upper Hall, and Bird Room, is open weekends FREE of charge, from 1:00-4:30 pm. A FREE cell phone tour of Glencairn's exterior and 1st floor is also available. Please join us this weekend for FREE Coffee in the Castle!

We visited last week and was pleasantly surprised with the beautiful mansion now converted into a museum. It has beautiful stain glass windows that has been built on site and are replica of stain glass windows from European Churches. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.
The variety of artifacts and attention to details are impeccable. It also houses the pieces collected by the family from Egypt , Greece and other parts of the world.
Definitely worth the time in the beautiful surrounding !!!
Will be definitely going back during their Fall festival for various activities and special tours.

The Stoogeum

Reviewed By BJ_Wanlund - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Made a little visit to The Stoogeum today, and it's basically a comedy fan's goldmine, especially if you're a gigantic Three Stooges fan. I've seen a couple of their shorts myself, and a few of their cartoon appearances, so I was semi-familiar with their catalogue. And even *I* was blown away by how extensive this place was. There are three levels. One has an art gallery of Stooges related art, one has a couple of Stooges arcade cabinets (including a Three Stooges pinball game and a modern Three Stooges ticket redemption game I think) and a number of artifacts, and one has a TON of goodies, like old lobby cards, old movie posters, old merchandise, lots of autographed pictures of the guest stars of many of those old Stooges shorts, and so much more. I actually spent an entire hour there (THAT I wasn't expecting), and I definitely plan on going back there, especially since I'm in the general neighborhood. If you're in the area and they're open (they're usually open on Thursdays from 10 to 3 or by appointment), go! It's a complete hidden gem of a location. It's tucked in behind an office park on a side street, but it is SO cool.

Kids Castle

Reviewed By Dorothy S - Los Angeles, California

Incredible - and free- humongous play structure for kids and big kids at heart alike. Massive four story structure with two giant slides, climbing galore, a place to picnic and tons to see/explore. Little kids have a nearby area, but be prepared to chase them as they chase the older ones. Don't come when too hot (no shade) but a great place to visit w kids in Bucks County.

Ambler Theater

The Ambler Theater, built in 1928, is a modified Spanish design. It is a nonprofit community-owned theater with approximately 6,000 members. The theater seats 140 and 110 in 2 of the auditoriums. Renovations to the third auditorium were completed in 2007 and it seats 270. The theater features dolby digital sound, stadium seating, handicap access and hearing impaired services.

Reviewed By Gary F - Maple Glen, Pennsylvania

The Ambler Theater is a local gem and an antidote to the horrid multiplex, cookie cutter theaters that predominate in the suburbs It is the closest movie experience to the Ritz theaters that we have in the suburbs. Much of the original architecture of an "ancient" movie palace have been retained. The lobby is small but authentic. So is the small refreshment stand.
Seats are comfortable and the theaters are small enough so the screen occupies much of your line of sight. The attendees are usually well behaved
and respectful of others.
Left for last is the outstanding moves that only Ambler brings to the screen - small independent productions, foreign films, documentaries, televised performances.

Crooked Eye Brewery

Reviewed By MeraKi25 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Crooked eye's staff are all really friendly. We shared two flights and the beer selection is good and varied. They have growlers and crowlers for sale too. Great spot, albeit a little hard to find tucked behind a tattoo shop. There's a deli next door, a wawa and a vegan restaurant are close by too, so you can grab food to bring with you.

Willow Grove Park Mall

Enjoy superior shopping in the Abington Township, Montgomery County and Greater Philadelphia area at retailers that include Macy's, Bloomingdale's and more.

Reviewed By Keith F - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania

The Willow Grove Park Mall had opened in 1982 on the site of the former Willow Grove Amusement Park. The mall has over 150+ stores for shoppers with several anchor tenants that include Sears, Bloomingdales and Macy's. There was a JCPenny here as well which just was closed. There are many upscale stores for people to shop at. Some of the shops include Bath and Body Works, Apple Store, Verizon Wireless, T-mobile, American Eagle Outfitters, Gap, Gap Kids, Build a Bear Workshop and others. The places to eat include Auntie Annies', Master Wok, Chick-fil-A, Roll-ups, Saladworks, Stewarts and Starbuck's.
The mall is owned the PREIT or the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust and Willow Grove Park is one of its more successful mores along with the Cherry Hill Mall in New Jersey.

The mall has three floors and it has a Victorian style throughout. There is also a carousel in the third floor entrance for guests.

We love this mall and are often shopping and the place does a great business. I would recommend visiting the Willow Grove Park Mall. Be sure to see some of the old pictures on the walls from the time when there was the famous Willow Grove Amusement Park on this very spot in the early 1900's.
