I took my 5 year-old who has been to many historic sites and loves them. He can sit through a PBS documentary with no complaints but the tour guide here was dry and spoke in a low, soft voice. The house has interesting history but the guide didnt focus so much on that but rather on the period-when the house was built. The rooms are well done and you can walk right into them. This was really neat but also a terrible enticement for young kids. I absolutely would not recommend it for families of young children, definitely not stroller friendly or for anyone with mobility issues. Small, narrow staircases and spaces. Very pretty gardens and grounds.
