We loved visiting the garden and greenhouse. The statues make it feel so elegant. The home is lovely and enjoyed the history of the property. The display of silver upstairs is exquisite. Loved it!

This is FREE (donations appreciated). Children will love to see the period furniture, and real kitchen setup, even have nicknacks throughout the residence. Be sure to explore the views and walk out to the gardens to experience old world wealth.

The house was wonderful and easy to see in an hour or so. I wish I could have stayed longer so I could explore the gardens. This part of the Museum of Art is truly worth the time!

The exterior of this mansion is beautiful. The surrounding gardens are also pleasant. There are some nice pieces of outdoor sculpture though there could have been more. The interior has interesting period pieces. The upstairs has a large (and overwhelming if you're not into silver)...More
