Join us for Wharton’s Second Sunday Birthday Bash! For Wharton’s 132nd birthday we’ll be offering discounted admission to our Second Sunday event, which offers guests a self-directed experience of the Museum. This allows you to wander and linger at will throughout Wharton’s Studio, with docents in every room to answer any of your questions and demonstrate the furniture. This is a particularly great tour for returning guests and for those who prefer more flexible viewing experiences.
This experience allows you to spend as much time as you like and doesn’t require reservations. Please be aware that you may not be able to enter the Studio immediately if the building is at capacity. We are busiest right at 1:00 pm during Second Sunday – we encourage those who can to arrive a little later to ensure a great viewing experience!
The Studio will be open from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. Wharton’s Second Sunday Birthday Bash also includes access to the Diamond Rock Schoolhouse, the historic octagonal schoolhouse that served as an early painting studio for Esherick!
Don’t forget to wear your party hat and bring your sweet tooth for some extra birthday treats!
We cannot accommodate group tours during Second Sundays.
There is no Second Sunday event in September due to our Annual Members’ Party, or in January and February while we are closed.
