I've visited many times over the last twenty years, and it just gets more wonderful every time, as the interior is refurbished with period paper, carpet and more marvelous furniture is added from the collections of the families who fell heir to these 18th treasures. If you are a Rev War buff, or have an interest in General Schuyler, the... More

We have visited may Civil War era dwellings in our travels around... More

We visited the mansion yesterday and it was great. The guide was very knowledgeable and the house was very interesting. It was worth our time during our short visit to Albany.

This historic home to the wealthy and powerful Schuyler family is a beautiful example of how the upper crust of the area lived in the past. It is lovingly preserved. Try to visit during the Christmas season when the house is decorated for the holidays.

Well-preserved, superb staff, and a wonderful all-round visit. Incredible how the family owned so much of the area and then lost it all.

fantastic pre-Revolutionar War mansion owned by one of the colony's leading families. Never very crowded, not well known, but worth the visit for history buffs.

The guide was excellent. He was enthused and knowledgable about the history of the family that built the house, the property and the city. He was charged up about history...very refreshing! The house had an interesting story and well preserved. It has been an historical site for 100 years!

I was lucky enough to get a tour all to myself from a very knowledgeable guide. The house is well preserved but it is the information from the guide that makes it come alive.There is an interesting small exhibit in the Visitor centre. Plenty of off street parking.
