Visionary Visits

Visionary Visits provides discounted and free guided tours of PMG for groups with a financial need. Special preference is given to Philadelphia public and charter schools, but all schools and organizations are welcome to apply.

The program educates youth and adults of all ages about Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens and its creator Isaiah Zagar. Tour themes can include mosaics, art as therapy, Mexican folk art, art environments, the impact of art on a neighborhood, and more. Hands-on artmaking activities or at-home art kits may also be added for a discounted fee.

Tours are scheduled on weekdays (except Tuesdays) and limited to 50 participants, including chaperones, for in-person tours. Larger groups may be accommodated over multiple visits.

Please direct questions to or call 215.733.0390 x. 116.

This program has been generously supported by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund and the Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Fund.
