Amazing glass tile work!
2020年3月 • 夫妻情侣
If you go for nothing else, go to see the incredible wall and ceiling art installed with glass tiles which were made on site. Hubby and I took the very inexpensive, $10 pp, 90-minute tour of the castle/museum and enjoyed it quite a bit. There is an elevator the guide used to transport us between floors, which I was so grateful to have. The house is very well maintained and an architectural wonder. Go online to reserve your timed tour ticket so you don’t miss out.
We will return to visit the other mansion on the property and the cathedral, or perhaps to attend on of the many events open to the public.

Pitcairn home
2020年1月 • 夫妻情侣
Never knew this existed. Gorgeous stonework buildings just 20 miles north of Philly. 2 beautiful houses and a cathedral. Pitcairn family homestead. History, museum, and Christmas nativities were on display. Spent about 3 hours. Time went really fast.

A Nice Christmas Season Tour
2019年12月 • 夫妻情侣
I have been to Glencairn before, but never for their holiday tour. Mr. Pitcairn amassed an enormous amount of artifacts and religious antiques over his many trips to Europe and the Holy Land. Almost all of them brought out as decorations for Christmas. Aling with many family heirlooms they purchased during their time at Cairnwoid and Glencairn. The tour was done very well and our group got to see numerous articles not seen on the regular tour. But I could not shake the feeling that the home was very cold and unhomey. Like living in something between an ancient cathedral and medieval castle.

A Must See Attraction!
The 3 tours of The GlenCairn Museum, Cairnwood Estates and the Cathedral were well worth spending the day with my wife! The breadth taking grounds and magnificent, well kept buildings were a joy to explore. The guided tours were not expensive and were of great value. The guides were professional, knowledgeable and gracious. The restrooms were plentiful and as spectacular as the rest of the facilities and elevators were available if needed.

We are actually going to go back in the Spring/Summer to get a better and more comfortable look of the grounds. (It was Cold when we toured)

Rich in history and well worth spending the day; we Highly recommend taking in the total experience!

Lovely tour done by professional guide. Enjoyed the beautiful Nativity from around the World displayed in a breathtaking Mansion setting, and history of the Estate.

Quite the treasure
I often wonder how many people drive by and never stop in. Glencairn is one of three beautiful buildings in this complex. The Pitcairn house is great and the museum is of another world! The interior walls are all stone with small tiles covering the walls and ceiling. The main room is gigantic. Their nine children must have had a great time playing in their home. We were there for the Christmas decorations and the 38 Nativity scenes from countries all over the world. We will be back in the spring to see the "home" again as well as the gardens. We will also take in the cathedral. Seeing the Philadelphia skyline from the top (7th floor) glass enclosed room was breathtaking. 90 rooms in all. What a fabulous treasure!

A Hidden Gem in Bryn Athyn,PA
Nestled in the borough of Bryn Athyn in a bucolic setting, visitors v an find several hidden gems- the best of them Glencairn- the castle/home of the Pitcairn family.
We were fortunate to arrive just at the beginning of a highlights tour. After a brief introductory film, we took the elevator up to the top floor which afford visitors grand panoramic view of the Huntington Valley and in the distance the Philadelphia skyline.
The former mansion houses a fantastic collection of artifacts from al over the world, some dating back to ancient Egypt.The architecture is truly unique, looking more like a castle than a mansion. The museum offers special programs throughout the year and I have been told, it a great place to visit during the Christmas season. There are also special "backpack' programs for children and families. Visitors can learn about the Pitcarins' religious beliefs and their relation to the nearby cathedral and a small liberal arts college.

This house is such a treasure. Filled with beautiful works of art and rich history about a wonderful family. Our young tour guide was so well educated. I can’t rave enough about this amazing home.
