Great Tour

We finally got to tour the mansion on our most recent trip. Well worth the small fee. The house is a wonderfully preserved piece of history!

Our tour guide Karen did an excellent job explaining how the Packer family lived in the 1800's.She was very knowledgeable of the mansion and the area and answered all of our questions. The whole house is original and you could feel how they lived. The only thing we didn't care for was no photos can be taken.

The mansion is stunning--the items inside are in incredible shape, and the artwork and house detail is absolutely fascinating. It's not a very long tour either which is nice. That said, our tour guide was sweet, but may have told us that a few of the clocks we're "the oldest in the house" not the best I've ever had, but... More

Awesome guides, mansion takes you back 200 years and shows how rich people lived. I mean it's amazing almost everything in there is antique and worth 100x more then it was purchased for 150 years ago. Compare that to the cheap Chinese made stuff we all use now....

On a very wet and rainy Saturday in June, we took the tour of the mansion. OMG – we were so impressed! The interior was amazing and our young tour guide was so knowledgeable. Everything was original except for several carpet runners to protect the original carpets. We had no idea what a treasure it was. This is a must... More

Visited with my husband and our 2 teenagers on a rainy day. We all found the museum to be very interesting and authentic. there is no bathroom, however, so make sure you use the facilities at the train station before making your way up the hill to the museum.

The tour of the museum was awesome! It was only the two of us, it was pouring that day and we were without umbrellas so we got a different version of the tour, seeing a couple things most don't get to see. The tour guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about her job which made the experience that much better!... More
