This is an interesting place steeped in Colonial history. There's also an excellent carriage museum on the grounds that's absolutely worth visiting simply amazing things in there a good reminder of a life long gone. Highly recommend the house and grounds tour as well as seasonal holiday and candlelit tours around Christmas.

We visited the Leesburg area in winter and wanted to get out and see some history before the snowstorm hit. were very happy to find this gem open, when several other places like it are closed. We toured the mansion and the Hound & Hunting Museum and Carriage Museum at Morven Park and found beautifully displayed artifacts in a wonderfully... More

Like stepping back in time! The home was beautifully decorated for the holidays and there was so many things to see. We toured the home and carriage museum.

Morven park is lovely...grounds are amazing with good short walking trails. We visited in the winter and also did the house tour. We visit one historic house a year...a tradition. By far our tour guide, Matt, gave the most interesting, knowledgeable narrative of any tour we have taken in the last ten years. His ability to distill complex ideas, facts,... More

We wandered the grounds of this lovely expansive park on a beautiful fall day and enjoyed the changing foliage. The mansion wasn't open during the hours of our visit so we couldn't see inside but we explored the gardens on our own.

Grounds were gorgeous. Most is free. There is a $10 tour of the mansion which is well worth the money. We learned a lot and enjoyed how well informed the guide was. A wonderful day trip.

This place was great. We used a Groupon, which worked out to $5 per adult; we had three kids with us, and one (age 5) got in free, and the other two were $5 each--all in all, a reasonable price for the experience. The main house is very grand, although from the outside, it looks like it needs some work.... More

My husband and I are not big history buffs but I found this tour very interesting. The tour guide was very knowledgable about the different families that lived there. The home did not have that old musty smell like most older homes. There are stairs so be prepared. To think such a large home and never any children raised there.... More

Had a group-on to visit Morven Park. It was a lovely fall afternoon, perfect for a trip to the "country". The grounds are lovely and quite extensive. My husband and I love looking at old homes - especially ones that are furnished. The house is well maintained and has quite a collection of period pieces. The chandeliers are magnificent. Our...

We visited here because of getting a Groupon (2 for 1). It was a perfect day to come here, a warm, dry, sunny day in October. It was not that difficult to find, at the second entrance, and parking is free in the paved lot. There is no signage there telling you where to go so we and others were... More
