Really enjoyed this visit to the Magic Gardens. Very interesting designs. We arrived at 11 am when it opened which was perfect. Very few people around and great photo opportunities.

This place is incredible. Definitely worth it and a must stop in Philly. It is not a far walk from city center and is a beautiful art mosaic.

A must visit if you are an Art Lover. Murals on the wall and floor. 10 dollars entree fee but completely worth! Can spent 30 mins here easily.
