Worth the effort!
Sep 2021 • Couples
An interesting and beautiful place — we specifically stopped in Albany to visit the Schuyler Mansion and it was worth our effort. Our tour guide was well informed and happily answered the many questions which arose as we learned more about this family and their lifestyles.
Due to road construction we found it hard to access the parking lot but this was just unfortunate timing on our part. We made reservations in advance.

Historic home is an Albany treasure!

This lovely mansion was the site of the wedding of Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler. You must made reservations in advance to tour. Allow about one hour for your visit. There are restrooms available in the visitor's center. There are four groups in each tour with two docents. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We highly recommend making this stop on your trip to Albany.

So I have a rather unhealthy "Hamilton" addiction...so I visited his Father-in-law's house.

Many in my tour group suffers the same affliction.

It was tough not to break out in song at certain places.

"Look around, Look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now" 😁

Great visit. Beautiful spot.

Pictures include the room where Hamilton and Elizabeth got married. Heard some great stories.

Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and understood Hamilton references. They were also very careful with Covid-19 protocols.

Highly recommend this stop

The tour guides emphasized the positive and negative characteristics of the Schuyler family...and Hamilton. This is true of most historic figures.

a steal at only $5 per person

We made a reservation in advance and were glad we did, I don't think we would have been able to tour otherwise. The house is lovely and unusual for the period. Lots of original and period pieces. Very enthusiastic tour guides. We were there for about 75 minutes. They had "pandemic protocols" in place to keep parties separated. Peggy Schuyler's grave is at the Albany Rural Cemetery, if interested.

A must for Hamilton fans
Oct 2020 • Family
We reserved tickets for today but ended up going to the wrong location. We called and drove out and they were able to get us in ( cancellation after we arrived). The grounds are well kept. They are following COVID rules very strictly. You have to sanitize to come in and they are only allowing small groups. The tour was wonderful. It was $5 for adults, which is very reasonable. If your a fan of the play Hamilton, this is a must.

This gives one a real good insight into the history of the Dutch and their importance to this area.

Our guide Ian was great and provided a lot of information not heard in other sources.

Unreliable
Nov 2019 • Couples
Despite their website saying they are open..... THEY'RE NOT, on a Sunday.

We went there this afternoon, and they are closed. They were setting up for a 2pm concert, and genuinely apologized that the website is not correct. They've only been aware of the mostly for several months, and can't seem able to correct and update. Pitiful!!!!
