The Phelps Mansion Museum has different programs each week. We have attended the Monday afternoon luncheon's with a speaker on a variety of topics. The staff gives guided tours of the Mansion several days each week. The building is beautifully restored and maintained with a rich history. A good spot to bring family and friends whether you live here or... More

The Phelps Mansion Museum in Binghamton, NY is well worth the visit. The tour guide was outstanding - extremely knowledgeable about the house & its architect Isaac Perry. He provided a fascinating and in-depth tour. There are many concerts and special events held at the Museum so it is worth checking the website and calendar. We paired this Sunday visit... More

The mansion is absolutely beautiful! I especially loved all the doors and windows! Our tour guide Frank gave us a very informative and enjoyable tour! So glad you get to go through the entire mansion! Will definitely be back, would especially like to visit when there is going to be a clothing Exhibit!

We had about two hours to kill and decided to visit the mansion. We enjoyed the tour and appreciated the history. The wood working is very impressive. I love the small nuggets of history .

I took a day trip from Elizabethtown PA last Saturday in Sept. hoping to see some leaf changing which I did and the day was perfect. From TA reviews I chose to visit the mansion being a lover of grand old houses. This fits the description and so much more. I was treated to a 1:1 tour since I was... More

What a wonderful day my husband and I had at this beautiful mansion! Frank gave an in-depth tour of the house and filled us with facts about the Phelps family and the Monday Women's Luncheon Club that kept this historic building in such pristine condition. We are discovering many treasures in the Binghamton Area!

The architecture, particularly the wood work inside, is very impressive! The tour is very nice. The guide pointed out a lot of details in the wood work! If you go on first Friday evening of each month (as part of the First Friday Art Walk), the tour is free.
