This open air museum consists of nine Western-style homes built between 1868 and 1912 for Western merchants living in Japan. Glover Mansion, the most famous of these, is Japan's oldest Western-style house.

The Glover gardens are a collection of buildings from around Nagasaki. You can walk through them and see the history of Nagasaki when the Dutch were there.
The best part was the well maintained gardens and the views of the harbour.

Nice, worth the money if you are particularly interested rather in the history...More
The gardens are beautiful along with the history of the area. The original homes have been maintained. The views from here are wonderful too. Allow yourself approx 2 hours or more to go through this site. Very interesting.

Yes to both . Definitely you don't need a tour guide . It's not too far away from the cruise terminal. Grab a taxi and you should be there within 15 minutes . When you are done with it and if the weather permits, you can consider walking back to the cruise terminal .
