Not a first priority place to visit unless you area Mummer or really love the Mummers. It is Philly tradition, but it is Schmalzy. Not for everyone.

Right in the heart of the neighborhood where the music is made. There is one night each week that you can listen to outside concerts. Take your own chair.

Great stuff from past Mummers parades and old costumes. Really worth the cheap entry fee

Our visit was a MAJOR disappointment. I took friends from Italy here because they particiate in an annual parade much like the Fancy Brigades. After the build-up I gave them about the Mummers, it was an embarassment.

The museum looks like no one has paid any attention to it since 1960. Exhibits are terribly dated. Many of the "interactive" features don't work. There's none of the excitement and enthusiasm of the event here. It's more a memorial to the Mummers of several decades ago...and not a very good one.

Took my Philly native kids here years ago. Was sadly disappointed by the rundown and so-so exhibits. If you are a Mummers Fan you may have a better experience. I hope so.
