While the house itself contains many lovely and interesting artifacts from the mid-1800s, and provides an interesting glimpse into the life of an obscenely wealthy family living in this time period, the tour is so rushed that you really don't have time to look at anything. For the price I had hoped to get more than a fleeting glance at each room, only to be rushed along by the slightly impatient guide. The information given by the tour guide was not what I was interested in hearing, as it focussed mostly on the family who lived in the house and their personal lives. The guide was not able to answer my questions about the furnishings and paintings or provide much historical context. I felt like I paid far too much for a very rushed tour. Extremely unsatisfying experience, overall. Felt a little ripped off. Cannot recommend.
