Glencairn Museum

Glencairn Museum
Bryn Athyn, United States

Glencairn, built between 1928 and 1939 in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania, was once the home of Raymond and Mildred (Glenn) Pitcairn and their children. The building now serves as a not-for-profit museum of religious art and history. Collections include ancient Egyptian, ancient Greek and Roman, medieval Christian, Islamic, Asian, and American Indian.

The mission of Glencairn Museum is to engage a diverse audience with the common human endeavor to find higher meaning and purpose in our lives. This is achieved by recognizing universal spiritual concepts expressed in religious beliefs and practices around the world—past and present—through the interpretation of art, artifacts, and other cultural expressions of faith.
