i liked our young historic interpeter. She was knoweldge and friendly. Ashley was her name. If you love touring old homes this is the way to go. The only thing they could improve was their gardens. Best mansion the whole trip. Happy touring.

Lovely grounds and reasonably priced admission. The house is historic and worth a tour. The carriage museum was also fun.

This is an absolutely gorgeous park, serene and full if history. It is lovely for picnics, but also has museums that are interesting. events are held here and although I've not attended, the park is quite large and can hold many people.

My wife and I visited Morven Park on a Sunday morning in July. Our tour guides name was Sara and she was an excellent tour guide. The mansion tour is 45 minutes and provides a look back at a great time and excellent views of the landscape from the second floor.We had a great time visiting the mansion.

Excellent place for carriage rides and horseback riding. Recently the park started an adult football league which I joined and it's been a blast.

Very interesting tour of Morven Park's mansion. The guide was very good and we were the only two in the group. The carriage museum is worth seeing too. Plan on walking around the grounds and exploring when you visit. The grounds are beautiful for hiking.

We came to Virginia to see my cousin ride in a dressage competition, and she did really well. The stables could have been nicer, but other than that we had a great time with the horse. They have a great cheap restaurant on the park and the grounds are gorgeous!

Went here with bicycles and really enjoyed the easy way to tour the property. The adjoining Equestrian center property added some more trails to ride around and also added to the unique atmoshere we found. Beautiful gardens and lovely old buildings to wander around. Best thing was the place was empty on a Sunday afternoon giving it a sense of... More
