The Maridon opened on May 8th, 2004. It is the only museum
in the Western Pennsylvania region with a specific focus on
Asian Art and Culture coupled with German Meissen porcelain.
The museum both the objects and the buildings that
house them is the gift of Mary Hulton Phillips. Patricia
Lowry, writing in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, pronounced
the Maridon a "gleaming little gem of a museum."
