I recommend Magic Garden very much! So artistic and unique..an exact embodiment of trash to treasure.[Gabriella, 02/19/2017]
One of the coolest, most beautiful attractions I've ever seen! The Magic Garden is a great place to spend an hour or a whole day.[Ashley, 04/20/2013]
This is definitely worth a stop. You could spend hours looking around and not catch all the interesting things here.[David Cholewa, 05/25/2010]
Philadelphia's Magic Garden is made up of two lots on offbeat South Street, where artist Isaiah Zagar has completely transformed the property into a mosaic dreamland. Visitors can admire the floor, walls, and ceilings of a large indoor gallery that incorporates broken tile, glass, mirrors, and found objects (even the bathroom and interior alleyways are covered) or wander through the meandering outdoor part, where whimsical paths incorporate all manner of mosaic and found object designs.[Stevita Roja, 10/02/2009]
