It's hard to imagine people actually lived in this large house with these furnishings. There are some very unusual items, some of the hard carved furniture and inlaid furniture is amazing. I loved the cat rug - unbelievable that it could survive for 2400 years! The audio tour was well done. This museum is worth going.

We thought this place would look like a real home - not a museum of different art type items. Even the bedrooms had art items - no beds. We got tired of the hand held tour guide describing everything. Some people may like it. We thought it was cluttered.

The former home was quite lovely with many, many objet d'art that was original to the two owners. It is much smaller than I imagined as it is patterned after Alhambra in Grandada Spain, there were really only 8 or 9 rooms, but they were beautifully appointed and had a lot of interesting items in each location.

First time for us to visit this place though we've been coming here for over 20 years. Fascinating history and beautiful artifacts. Is an audio tour which gave good information about the owners, the architecture, etc. There is some ongoing renovation work happening, but not distracting. Take the time to visit this place if you like history and architecture.

A great representation of the era of excess, with more cool stuff rich people collected. It's based on a real Spanish castle and is full of great Asian, African and European art, furniture and collectables. Incredible handiwork!

This a replica of a wing of the Alhambra. Beautiful and fascinating. The little tour radios had a sense of humor at times. The history and the architecture of the building were fascinating and inspiring. Now my husband wants to decorate our house like this!
