Very nice small museum with frequently changing exhibits. Small enough so you don't get overwhelmed. Good place to hold a function

Dont miss the James Michener exhibit. Can you believe the Uffizi Gallery collection was hosted here?? Grab a sandwich in the cafe and enjoy the outdoor patio. Many Bucks County artists are well represented.
