Visited here in October and a guide lady from Michigan took us through the site. The statues and art work are beyond words and so very worth take the time to drive here and visit. This is a lovely site and the art is heart warming. The lady guide/ranger who took us through was super. We will look for ways... More

Very very nice and pretty area. Saint Gaudens house was so cute. To get in you had to go with the guide. Our guide was just smart and excellent woman. She could tell about the history and answered to our questions. It rained but the area looked so pretty. We could walk much more at the area otherwise. But we... More

This is such a beautiful site to visit. The grounds are beautifully kept and the works of art/history are excellent. We find many people are unaware of this little gem of a place nestled in the small town of Cornish NH. Put this on your to-do list as it is worth the visit!

We visited this National Historic Site on a beautiful Fall day. The house and grounds (all videos and timed tours are included in the small admission fee) are varied and lovely, with Saint Gaudens sculptures placed throughout. To be in the place where such a genius produced such beautiful objects was a very satisfying experience. In addition to bronze reliefs,... More

The home and studio of one of America's greatest sculptors. The ability to stand so close to such masterpieces, for as long as you wish, in relative solitude should not be missed.

Located in Cornish. NH, off the beaten path up near Hanover. Collection of an amazing number of recasts of many of his works. I said it: amazing. You would have to travel to an incredible number of locations: DC, Boston, Philadelphia,... to see these creations, and they are all here and repro- well if you can call a recast a... More

As a tribute to Augustus Saint Gaudens, arguably America's greatest sculptor of all time, the Saint Gaudens National Historic Site is a focal point for art, sculpture, craftsmanship, numismatics, history, and nature. We started our day at the visitor's center! We suggest you do likewise. It will get you oriented to all the site has to offer. The guidance we... More

Take your time and explore all the buildings and don't miss the grounds. The video in the visitor's center is a must if you're unfamiliar with Saint-Gauden's work. The national park senior pass will get you in, a small fee otherwise. On site parking.

I'm not really into art and sculptures, but I thought this would be an interesting site since it is a National Park. Wow! Make sure that you attend the video at the visitors center before you tour the grounds. It gave me such an appreciation for his sculptures that I would not have had otherwise. I feel so blessed that... More

I was taken here by friends and it was my first introduction to New Hampshire. What a beautiful setting - certainly an inspiration to anyone lucky enough to live there. The museum was interesting but the studio was even better - a lovely work space. The grounds were amazing with lots of different areas to explore. Really deserves a visit.
