    The most amazing thing to discover at the logistics they had to go through to build this place!
  • Tom G.
    Get there early. Crowds start around 10:00 and house is not air conditioned. Pack a lunch because you could be there all day with so many things to see and do.
  • Ian B.
    The audio tour is well worth it!! They basically hand you a banana phone to listen to as you walk around. Concise & interesting the whole way.
  • Sabrina A.
    Its completely possible to carry your stroller down to the basement
  • Sabrina A.
    If you want to save a little bit of money, get one audio tour and have one person designated as the "tour guide". The house is stroller friendly, with stroller parking & an elevator

    Really wonderful place to wander around. It can get crowded, so be prepared to be patient. Also note the time on your ticket because we didn't and ended up having to wait 1hr before entry.

    You could easily pretend you're visiting Darcy's estate from J. Austen's "Pride & Prejudice" in England though the manor is French-inspired. The gardens, of English tradition, are a pure delight!
