Wharton Esherick’s home and studio is his most iconic work and we are committed to enabling all visitors to experience this special place. Due to the historic, hand-built nature of the building and a spiral staircase which connects an upper and lower level, portions of the studio are not accessible for wheelchair users and individuals with mobility issues. In lieu of navigating through these spaces physically, we provide printed or digital material as a way of exploring these spaces. Accomodations can be arranged in advance for visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as visitors who are blind or have low vision.


Adults $15
Seniors $13 (ages 65 and up)
Students $12
(with valid I.D)
Children $8 (12 years of age and under)
Group Rate $12 (on weekday tours for groups of 20 or more)

Notice: Please be prepared to pay for your tickets at the time you call to make your reservation for any tours on days surrounding a holiday.

Large group tours require either a $100 deposit or half of the total group cost (depending on size) at the time you place your reservation.
