Wow what a pleasant surprise
Aug 2013
We visited the house on August 14th. we stumbled on this place as we were walking and looking for a place to eat.
We met Mr. Westinghouse himself and his wife. He gave us the tour. What an extraordinary person. He showed us the house and told us about his family legacy. we were very impressed with his knowledge and would love to meet him and his wife again-maybe in NYC?
Strongly recommend to everyone. Go visit this great couple and no doubt in my mind you will leave with a smile. Pleasure to meet this great people.

We went there during the White nights, when all the museums were open till 1am and the entry was free of charge. We had the tour by Mr Westinghouse himself!!! We couldn't believe our luck ;)
