It's easy to forget when touring the Breakers that this was a summer home, not a full time residence. The scale is hard to comprehend - over 100,000 square feet of living space, 50 foot ceilings, accommodations for 33 employees on the top floors and so on. The audio tour is very good and allows you to get as much detail as you want on the rooms, the people and the artwork. If you're in a hurry much of this can simply be skipped.
Tip: if you want to visit two homes by a combo ticket - you will save big (and a five home visit even a better deal).
