If you appreciate beautiful things, then treat yourself to Nemours Mansion. The grounds are meticulously maintained. The tour guide Debbie and her coworker Terry were so nice and knowledgeable. It is well worth the visit and I will visit again very soon.

A beautiful mansion and surrounding gardens. It is hard to comprehend the wealth associated with creating the mansion and it's contents. As the Duponts lived in this mansion one might expect to see some wear and tear of the infrastructure, but even the machinery and kitchen look like they are almost new. The artifacts and artwork are over the top,... More

I visited on a weekday and there were not many people about. The mansion is a combination of French style and American comforts.The tour was informative, the guide was able to answer questions about art works and furnishings. I wandered about the serene and beautiful gardens for more than an hour, chatted with the gardeners and took some lovely photos.

First I want to say the building and grounds are beautiful. Touring the inside of the Manson has beautiful artifacts of the wealthy at the turn of the 20th century. The internal and external architecture is a wonder. What I do not like, as a photographer you can not take pictures inside. You have to make an appointment with about... More

An amazing Dupont estate, way ahead of the times for technology and luxury. This is another DuPont legacy that is well worth a visit.

We visited Nemours with the Brandywine Passport. We strolled through the visitors center for an hour since we were early. When our time came we watched the video and then were assigned a bus. It was nice not to have to walk up to the mansion! When we got up there we were divided up into groups of 5 or... More

Went to visit mansion yesterday. It was so worth the trip. Took the two hour an half mansion tour. Our guide that took us through the mansion was so pleasant and so much about the family and mansion history. If you love art, antiques, and statues this is the place for you. So much to see in each room. I... More

Nice place to visit with knowledgeable and friendly staff. So don't be afraid to ask questions about the place people etc. We had just stopped by on a whim. But the tour was full. (Make reservations) But they asked if we would like to go on the tour. So we went and enjoyed the last tour of the afternoon. Great... More

This place is beautifully designed and has the original furnishings.. Love the intimacy of touring in groups of 6. Guides are knowledgeable. If it's raining wear non skid shoes as the floors are highly polished. It is spotlessly clean.They provide umbrellas.!00 percent recommend!

This a wonderful place to visit. The tour guides are very knowledgeable. The mansion is beautiful and the gardens are spectacular. Make sure you make reservations! People were turned away and you don't want to miss this location.
