    A museum that seems odd and out-of-place here in Butler; I was definitely surprised to see it!The Maridon Museum is a Chinese and Japanese art museum! The museum features the collection of Mary Philips, a Butler native who began collecting Asian art after becoming infatuated by a Japanese sculpture. It features gorgeous displays of large jade carvings, as well as figurines, porcelain, and other treasures. Artifacts range from modern to ancient. Along with the Asian art, there is also a room of German Meissen Porcelain figures that were made by copying Chinese porcelain by the Europeans who had not previously known how to make it.

    The museum is open Wednesday to Saturday from 11 AM to 4 PM. Appointments can be made for visits on other days. Entrance is $4 adults, $3 students and seniors, and children 8 and under are free.
