Join Schuylkill River Greenways for a private and free tour of the Wharton Esherick Museum, home and studio of famed American artist Wharton Esherick located atop Valley Forge Mountain in Chester County.
The museum campus is set on 12 wooded acres and comprised of multiple buildings including Wharton Esherick’s Studio, now the centerpiece of the museum. Esherick’s highly individual, hand-built Studio was constructed over a 40-year period beginning in 1926, incorporating Arts and Crafts, Expressionist, and organic designs. Two years later Esherick began his 1928 Expressionist garage, now the visitor center. In 1973, just one year after its official opening as a museum, the Studio was added to the National Register of Historic Places. In 1993, the Museum was designated a National Historic Landmark for Architecture.
Tours last about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the tour starts.
