Get an insider’s view of Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. These guided interpretive tours take visitors through the PMG main site, including areas not normally open to the public. Topics include Zagar’s mosaic techniques and influences, the materials used in the mosaics (with a particular focus on tiles and global folk art), the narratives behind his iconography and images, and the history of South Street and Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. Tours last approximately one hour.


Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 3:00 PM April-October
