Patricia Lowry, writing in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, pronounced the Maridon a “gleaming little gem of a museum.”

The Maridon was featured in Huffington Post’s article “55 Best Lesser Known Art Museums, Artist Studios, and Art Centers in Northeast USA.” Come visit us to find out just why Malerie Yolen-Cohen, Huffington Post Contributor, wrote “It’s a knockout museum worth a drive from anywhere.
