Event Date/Location

Second Sundays

On the Second Sunday of every month we are excited to offer a self-directed tour of the Museum. This allows you to wander and linger at will throughout Wharton's Studio. Docents will be in every room to answer any of your questions and demonstrate the furniture.

This experience allows you to spend as much time as you like and doesn't require reservations- however, don't come too late because the Museum closes at 4:00 pm.

There is no Second Sunday event in September due to our Annual Members' Party.



Time: 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Place: The Wharton Esherick Museum

Cost: $12

** NO Reservations Required**

Wine & Cheese Tours

Ever wish you could spend time on Wharton's deck, perhaps sipping wine and enjoying local cheese? Well now you can!

Starting in May, we offer a summer series of Wine & Cheese Tours to take place once a month. In October, we will have an October Fest with locally-sourced beers to welcome the arrival of fall. The tours will end on the deck with wine from Chadds Ford Winery and beer from Victory Brewing Co.

Tours are limited to 12 people, so make your reservations now! Call 610-644-5822 (payment required at the time of reservation).
