Loved this place - it was unique, full of character and makes for great photos. I would allow 1 to 2 hours to really take it all in, including the surrounding neighbourhood. Also - probably one the coolest "bathroom" experiences in all my travels lol...More

Philadelphia's 'Magic Gardens' definitely lives up to its name. It's an outdoor, mosaic wonderland. I am really glad I saw it!

While this place boasts some unusual artwork, you can see almost the whole thing from the street. In addition you can see murals in the neighbourhood by same artist. 20 bucks for two people to walk through a hodgepodge of ceramics, mosaics, and artistically placed...More

Interesting and unusual for sure but what you can see from the street is pretty much what you get on the $10 self tour. Can see murals in the neighbourhood by same artist that give you the idea.

This magical garden is absolutely stunning. It's made with discarded items, everything from glass bottles to kitchen tiles, in such a wide variety of designs that I could have spent hours wandering through this place, soaking in the surprises. As it is, I would like...More

After seeing this I would go to Philly again just to see it. There is so much to look at in a relatively small area. Every time you go through it you see something you didn’t the first time. I must have taken 100 pictures....More
