The Pennsbury Manor Visitor Center replaced and was built on the site of an earlier visitor center on this historic site of William Penn’s family home on the Delaware River north of Philadelphia.  The design process included a public design charette to determine the appropriate form and massing of the new building, which was instrumental in gaining public support and charitable donations for the project. Pennsbury Manor was the first PHMC Visitor Center in the Commonwealth to incorporate museum-quality environmental controls for its exhibit and archival spaces. The building houses an auditorium, an exhibits room, artifacts storage, offices and support spaces for staff and volunteers, and a reception hall, public restrooms, and a gift shop.
