Magnificent Measures! The Hausman–Hill Collection of Calculating Instruments, is an exhibit featuring rare examples of historical measuring instruments drawn from the private collection of Bucks County residents Kathryn Hausman and Jim Hill. Over the last fifty years, Hausman and Hill have built one of the most extensive private collections of early colonial and 19th-century American measuring implements. Many of the early measuring tools and complex instruments on display embody the sophisticated scientific principles that helped map, measure, and build early America. Entrance to Magnificent Measures! The Hausman-Hill Collection of Calculating Instruments is included with general Mercer Museum admission. The Mercer Museum is open Tuesday – Sunday from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m via timed-entry slots. Advance tickets are highly recommended.
