They were offering a lantern tour describing funeral, mourning, and death during the Gilded Age. Late 1800's. Very informative and enjoyed immensely.

I am so thankful for the wonderfully extensive tour I received even though I was just one person on the tour! The Phelps mansion has such a full history from architecture, to politics, to local culture and people. And there was the added bonus of a spirit siting just in time for the Halloween season!

My husband and I visited this great museum on Saturday. Our tour guide, Helen was phenomenal and really added so much great information about the museum and the history of Binghamton. I would recommend a stop here for anyone passing through or who lives in the Binghamton area.
