    Early Americana Revisited in Bucks County.

    Dine under the stars in our clear-top, air-conditioned tent enhanced with dramatic state-of-the-art lighting rotating in a prism of colors on the historic castle. Our event space accommodates up to 180 guests for dinner and dancing and sits in a brand new courtyard nestled within this National Historic Landmark museum.  

    Host your ceremony in our beautifully landscaped sunken gardens.  Or, exchange vows instead in the Museum’s Great Hall, which features a breathtaking view of the towering seven–level castle that is this gorgeous museum. 

    The castle-museum, creation of Henry Mercer (1856-1930) was built to collect and preserve the outmoded material of daily life in America before it was swept away by the Industrial Revolution.

    The towering central atrium of the Museum was used to hang the largest objects such as a whale-boat, stage coach and Conestoga wagon. On each level surrounding the court, smaller exhibits were installed in a warren of alcoves, niches and rooms according to Mercer’s classifications — healing arts, tinsmithing, dairying, lighting and so on. The end result of the building is a unique interior that is both logical and provocative.
