Collections

The Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle feature some of the most diverse and important collections found in American museums. They range from early American tools and folk art to materials expressive of the rich history and culture of Bucks County and the nearby Delaware Valley. They include objects from other global cultures as well as those related to the art, architecture and scholarly interests of museum founder and tile maker Henry Chapman Mercer. Among them are some 65,000 original artifacts, as well as thousands of books, manuscript materials, images and other archival materials.
