A place I bring all my out of town visitors. A place we are all so proud to share. Unique exhibits. I never tire of this museum.
We went back to the Michener Art Museaum for the Grace Kelly exhibit. It was great - so many beautiful dresses, her Oscar, and details about her movie career and charitable works. We also took in the Pennsylvania impressionist works - again, because we've been here as regular museum patrons as well as attendees at catered events in the new... More
Eye opening experience for me. Wonderful building and great mix of displays. The current exhibit features the history of the Bucks County Playhouse is terrific. My significant other is an artist great rote . She was drawn to the great art on display. I learned more about James Michener Today then I had expected. His personal history and some life... More
Great - except I would have preferred fewer clothes and more photos and letters. Overall, I enjoyed the visit, and the Museum is really a Bucks County gem!

The Michener Museum is a very pretty museum. We went to see the Grace Kelly exhibit which I felt didn't quite hit the mark. I was esp. disappointed with the audio. I need to return for another show before I can make a real judgement.

The Pennsylvania impressionist and Nakashima furniture collections are not to be missed, and we consistently enjoy their special exhibits--such as the recent Grace Kelly show that focused on her wardrobe--as well. All in, I wouldn't expect such quality outside a major city, but we are fortunate... More
Our small office had a docent-lead tour of the Grace Kelly exhibit and explored the general exhibits. This is a little gem a block or 2 from the heart of Doylestowns shops and restaurants. It was a treat to visit for the first time and learn about Michener, as well as explore the eclectic collection, which emphasizes the rich artistic... More
Let me start by saying that I am a major classic film buff and Grace Kelly has always been my all time favorite actress from that era. Having been born and raised in the Philadelphia area, Grace had a special significance to me since she grew up in Philadelphia herself. When I stepped into the first room of the exhibit... More
Fabulous exhibition of Grace Kelly's life from Philadelphia to Monaco. Only at the James Michener Art Museum until Jan 26. Afterwards, walk around the lively Pennsylvania town of Doylestown. We had lunch at M.O.M S., it was very good.
