James A. Michener Art Museum

After taking in the captivating artwork by Pennsylvania Impressionists at the James A. Michener Art Museum, visitors might be surprised to learn that they’re standing in a former Bucks County prison. Today the museum preserves, interprets and displays the art of the Bucks County region, and it hosts traveling exhibitions.
