Step into the World of

Nineteenth-Century Philadelphia

The Victorian era was a time of massive societal transformations, complex ideas, and bold decorative choices, and visitors to Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion explore them. In addition to house tours, you can enjoy live Victorian Theatre and participate in unique programs and workshops. Stroll our gardens for a unique glimpse into our past. Our mission is to showcase Victorian-era Philadelphia through the architecture, grounds/gardens, and collections; and to educate, entertain, and inspire the public through onsite educational programming, tours, theatre productions, and lectures. Plan to visit the museum soon!
