‘House & Home’ Explored in New Mercer Exhibit

A visit to Doylestown wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Mercer Museum, one of the town’s best attractions. Starting Jan. 24, museum-goers can drop in on a new exhibit, “House & Home.”

Visitors can experience just what the American home represents – from colonial times up to present day – in a series of artifacts, photographs, film clips, construction materials and “please touch” elements. A companion exhibit features items from Henry Mercer’s early investigations into “old houses.”

Also take advantage of a variety of programs that provide more details, including uncovering the life story of your own home, the significance of Levittown and another mid-20th century suburban community, and an insider’s look at several home renovation and building projects in Doylestown Borough.

The exhibit ends March 15. Most programs are included in the museum admission price.

The museum is open daily: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays; noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Information: (215) 348-9461 or www.mercermuseum.org.
