We had the pleasure of taking a tour of Morven Park today with Jackie, although two of us had been twice, we both learned new interesting information regarding Morven Park. Morven Park is not one of those locations you just want to visit once, it looks a little different each time you go. The holiday decorations and furnishings bring you... More

We had a house tour for two with Ashley, a very knowledgeable and pleasant docent. She answered our many questions with high enthusiasm for Morven Park and its history, inhabitants, and the culture of the Leesburg area. Next visit we will plan on spending time in the park and gardens and enjoying the carriage house. Highly recommend this tour.

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. Haven't visited the main park- the former governor's residence (the main attraction) but will at some point. Attended the NoVA Brewfest Summer 2013 here 3 wks ago and it was fun (park planners did a good... More

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!
