Stood in line for 3 and a half hours. Direct sunshine. Told us it would be an hour wait. 95 degrees out. Nice house but not worth it.

It was an informative step-back in time guided by enthusiastic and knowledgeable docents. My favorite item inside the house was a functioning an Edison cylinder phonograph along with a collection of cylinders (records) and playlist dated from the late nineteenth century.
