Attraction

Philadelphia's Magic Gardens

Winding through the labyrinth outdoor sculpture garden and the indoor mosaicked galleries feels a bit like stepping through the mirror in Alice and Wonderland.

The effect of the mosaics, made up of everything from china plates to kitchen tiles to bike wheels, is simply stunning, especially on a sunny day when the bottles and mirrors glisten and shimmer in the sun. Created by artist Isaiah Zagar, the gardens feature folk art statues from Latin America and Asia, Zagar's handmade tiles, thousands of mirrors, colourful glass bottles and public murals.
