Tours of the Pennypacker mansion during the holidays are a reflection of Christmases past when shimmering glass ornaments dangled from tree branches and shiny ribbons were woven through mantle greens. All ages welcome.
Holiday Tour Hours: Tues-Sat: 10 am to 4 pm; Sun: 1 to 4 pm. Closed Mondays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve & Day, and New Year's Eve & Day.
Note: Groups of ten or more should contact the site for a group tour.
Pennypacker Mills is the home of Pennsylvania Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker (1903-1907) and his family. Set on 170-acres of bucolic farmland, the mansion is completely furnished and houses an extensive collection of official and personal artifacts of the Pennypacker family. Operated by the County of Montgomery, the site is open year-round for guided tours, seasonal events, educational programs, changing exhibits, and special programs.
The Museum Shop is stocked with beautiful, vintage inspired decorations, children’s toys and books, ornaments (hand-blown glass, glass icicles, Dresden’s), Clear Toy Candy, Wilbur Bud chocolates, and much more!
Pennypacker Mills provides handicapped accessible parking & restrooms. The mansion is partly handicapped accessible on the first floor, not the 2nd floor. Visitors may contact the site in advance to make arrangements to drop off handicapped persons closer to the mansion.
