Philadelphia’s Magic Garden

without comments

Philadelphia’s Magic Garden (PMG), located in south Philly on South Street, is the brain child of local Philadelphia artist Isaiah Zagar. Zagar’s surreal indoor/outdoor, complex is made entirely, from ceiling to floor, of mosaics. For the artist lover in the family, PMG will give you a glimpse into the mind of an amazing artist, where you can “see” the visualization of what the artist was thinking. The museum offers a guided tour that will take you throughout Philly’s vibrant South Street district to see many of the 130 + wall mosaics that Zagar has made.

For a Philly attraction, PMG is a deal, definitely a must see. $10 per adult, $6 per child, gains you entrance into the museum and the guided tour. Be sure to bring good walking shoes and make sure you don’t visit on a hot day as the entire experience is outdoors. Click here to visit the PGM website to learn more.
