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

Our peak times are on weekends 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. Buy tickets online to avoid the line!


Self-guided groups of more than 15 people must reserve in advance by emailing or by calling (215) 733-0390. Groups without a reservation may not be admitted. Groups of 7 or more may schedule guided tours on weekdays. Learn more and book here!


ACCESS Cardholders (those PA residents who monitor their government issued cash and food benefits
with an EBT card), are invited to use their card at PMG for just $2 with code ACCESS. ACCESS Philly is a
city-wide initiative, led by Art-Reach. For more info, visit

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 with questions about accessibility and we will try to accommodate your needs.


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.
