*Groups of 10 or more pre-K children are $2 per student.

Our peak times are on weekends, especially Saturdays, between 11:00 AM- 5:00 PM. During times of heavy visitation PMG sometimes reaches maximum capacity, so guests may have to wait in line before entering.

Self-guided groups of more than 15 people must reserve in advance by emailing education@phillymagicgardens.org or by calling (215) 733-0390. Groups without a reservation may not be admitted.

Accessibility

Much of the main indoor gallery at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens and parts of the outdoor sculpture garden are accessible to people in wheelchairs and strollers. Both the basement (open for guided tours only) and the sculpture garden have stairways and narrow passageways that are not equipped with ramps, elevators, or railings. Visitors with disabilities are encouraged to further explore the work of Isaiah Zagar through tours that lead visitors through PMG and down the sidewalks and alleys of the surrounding neighborhood.

PMG has a minimal amount of space to park strollers indoors.  We recommend that strollers be left off-site or folded up if at all possible.

Please call us at (215) 733-0390 or email education@phillymagicgardens.org with questions about accessibility and we will try to accommodate your needs.

Policies

Please read our Rules & Policies page.

Casual photography is permitted and encouraged during our regular hours and events. If you would like to schedule a photo or video shoot in the space, such as for a wedding or promotion, please contact us in advance. Read our Photography Policy for complete information.

Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather that renders the outdoor space unsafe for visitors (such as lightning, ice, sleet, or snow) PMG will immediately CLOSE the outdoor portion of the museum.

While there is snow and/or ice on the ground the outdoor portion will remain CLOSED until all precipitation has melted away. During this time PMG will offer half price admission to visitors to view the indoor galleries. Visitors will be notified via the homepage of our website, or can call (215) 733-0390 to ask about conditions prior to visiting.
