The basics

You can explore PMG on your own but to get the most out of the site, a guided tour is recommended. See areas not normally open to the public, and learn about Zagar’s techniques and influences, as well as the narratives behind his images. Guided neighborhood tours are also available during certain times of the year. PMG also hosts numerous workshops, classes, and other community events throughout the year, as well as changing exhibitions in the two indoor galleries.

Book your tickets online to skip the line and guarantee entry, as admission can be limited during busy periods. PMG is also included in a number of Philadelphia sightseeing tours, including foodie tours and tours of South Philadelphia.

Mike was the host with the most! Not only did he show us the typical Philly sites, he shared lots of facts only known by the locals. Mike also made learning history fun! We felt completely safe even though we were on the streets in the City of Brotherly Live. We'd definitely do this again.
