An easy to "stroll-able" museum with notable pieces and rotating exhibits that inspire and excite. Too bad the "cafe" does not reflect the visitor tastes offering a place to reflect or frequent before the museum visit.

One of my favorite places, the Michener is a top notch art museum. Past exhibits include the Grace Kelly retrospective, the art of local artist William B. T. Trego, the Hollywood Costumes exhibit, the world of Jim Henson, and many permanant exhibits such as the Bucks County Impressionists. To see Mr. Michener's writing desk, typewriter and his books and collectibles is thrilling.I'm a proud supporter.

Small museum but their collections are always interesting. They change numerous times during the year so there is always a reason to go back. Friendly staff, mostly volunteers and a nice shop that features the works of Michener and other notable locals.

A great transformation. An art gallery where once prisoners were housed. It is always enjoyable viewing special exhibits, checking out the gift shop and having a cup of coffee indoors or outdoors. A pleasant afternoon's jaunt.

A little disappointing for the price, nice outdoor sculpture garden, exhibits inside were spacious - hard to appreciate a collection of furniture - like the painting best
