Built in 1843 by United States Supreme Court Justice Henry Baldwin, the Baldwin-Reynolds House Museum is the premier home of history, the arts, and cultural experiences in northwest Pennsylvania. Our mission is to bring history and the arts to life...and to the lives of our community. Through FREE tours generously sponsored by Armstrong Cable Company, an extensive event and program schedule, and complete immersion in one of the largest and most significant collections of art in western Pennsylvania, we are proud to advance this mission.

The Meadville Garden Club has been a 40+ year partner of the museum in their decorating of the mansion for the Christmas season. This biannual Christmas tour, occuring November 18,19,20, 25,26, and 27th is your chance to see the museum lit up as if the family was still living there at during the holidays!
From the great american satirist Mark Russell, to an upcoming concert by the America's Got Talent stars, VOX, the museum brings the best and brightest minds, voices, and senses of humor to Meadville for the enjoyment and enrichment of the community.
