Well worth the visit to Camden. I am travelling from Australia, this was close to the top of my list of must-do's. It did not disappoint. My tour was conducted by a wonderful, knowledgeable guide (I'm sorry his name eludes me).
We were given a grand tour even though we arrived at an off time. We learned so much great stuff about Walt and saw so many artifacts from Walt’s later life there at the house. No photos allowed inside. Be sure to feed the meters...More

I have wanted to visit this historic place for some time, but as is the usual, if you live by an historic place, its usually the last place you visit!!!
It was recommended you call before visiting, as the house is not necessarily open the...More
