The Wharton Esherick Museum, located at 1520 Horshoe Trail in Malvern, was the home of Wharton Esherick (1887-1970), a sculptor who worked primarily in wood, readily extending his unique forms to furniture, furnishings, utensils, interiors and buildings, creating sculptural environments. A National Historic Landmark for Architecture, his hilltop studio/residence, with more than 300 of his works on exhibition, has been preserved much as it was when the artist lived and worked there. His motto, “if it isn’t fun, it isn’t worth doing,” is evident in the joyful expression of his work, inviting the eye and the hand.

Tours are by reservation only and are all led by knowledgeable docents. The tour lasts about an hour and 15 minutes, and takes you through five rooms inside the studio.
