    I loved this place, it's like nowhere I've ever been. So many painfully photogenic nooks and crannies to discover. Find his other works scattered around the south Philly neighbourhood.

    The artist really took his thoughts and displayed them so that everyone could admire them, I hope he realizes that his masterpiece has come to live and that with each visit something new is discovered

    Such a fun and unique space of awesome urban art!!! $10 entry, but worth it - cost helps keep the place in tact and looking super cool

    This is a unique art installation more than a garden. On Wednesdays they have free wine and snacks. Overall a must do, at least once.

    Try to catch one of the short presentations (or at least talk to a guide). Knowing a bit about the artist's story gave me a whole new appreciation and understanding of the art.

    Very cool place to walk through but also check out the website to find the locations of public installations throughout the city. Isaiah’s work pops up in a bunch of nearby places.

    Stop in around 2:00 PM every day (and 4:00 PM on Fridays!) to listen in on one of our "Mosaic Musings!" Also, make sure to check our calendar for early closings when planning a visit.

    All jokes aside the Gardens do a great job summing up a lot of the culture in Philly. Some things in that garden that are literally unbelievable. As in I can't find words to describe it on here.

    Countless pieces of shattered mirror, bottles and more come together to compose beautiful works of art. Admission is $5 and don’t plan to go to the outdoor garden in the winter, it may be iced over.

    Beautiful little hidden gem in Center City. A great place to kill an hour or two. Go during the golden hour for the best pictures.

    This was a great museum and different from most other things that you'll see around Philly. So creative and worth the visit! Enjoy!

    What else can you say about Isaiah Zagar? He's a magic (gardens) man. The fun, funky Magic Gardens includes a fully mosaiced indoor gallery & a massive outdoor labyrinthine mosaic sculpture.

    This place is fantastic. Feel free to touch everything in here if you're blind, despite what the signs might say. After all, you can't read them anyway, right?

    After visiting, remember to stroll around the neighborhood to see other examples of mosaic work done by the artist and students using his "style."

    It may only be a 3,000-square-foot plot of urban land, but there's a lot to see. Reclaimed trash mosaics, mirror and tiles make this one hidden gem.

    Explore Isiah Zagar's magical art space that seems to transform every time we visit. Admission is just a fiver, but you can support this local treasure by joining as an annual member, for just $25.

    Did you know? Mosaic art has been around for thousands of years. As early as the 4th century BC, elaborate mosaic floors were features in many Ancient Greek homes. Leer más

    Attend a fundraiser for a $5 party in a truly magical place. If you cash in your drink ticket, though, watch out for sharp edges and low ceilings

    Be sure to have your camera ready. Everything, including the washrooms are decorated. When finished, cruise South street to see more of his work being adorned on storefronts.
