The Bryn Athyn Historic District sits in the heart of Bryn Athyn, PA.

Driving directions

Coming from either NORTH or SOUTH, once you reach Bryn Athyn Borough, turn onto Cathedral Road from the stoplight on Route 232/Huntingdon Pike/Second Street Pike. There are large signs reading ‘Bryn Athyn Cathedral,’ ‘Glencairn Museum,’ and ‘Cairnwood Estate.’ There are parking lots located adjacent to Bryn Athyn Cathedral, Glencairn Museum, and Cairnwood Estate, and there is an additional lot across from the Cathedral along Cathedral Road.

Public Transportation

Septa Regional Rail:
Bethayres Station on the West Trenton line is the closest train station to Glencairn Museum. The Museum is just over a mile north of the station on Huntingdon Pike. Visitors can take a bus (see below), call a car service, or walk up the hill (please note that in some areas there is a only shoulder on the road and no sidewalk. Locals do walk this regularly, however).

Septa Bus:
The Number 24 Septa bus stops directly in front of the Museum and across from Bryn Athyn College.
