This tour was my favorite part of my weekend trip. My tour guide Frank was the absolute best, he was so knowledgeable and funny! I had the best time. And the mansion is so beautiful . The wood work is amazing. Definitely recommend to my friends and family. Thanks for a great time Frank!!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the museum. The tour guide was knowledgable and was able to answer all of my questions! I highly recommend this museum when traveling to Binghamton to get a taste of what the world was like in 1870 from the perspective of a very wealthy family. The woodwork is fantastic!

Due to Covid, tours were single family groups only, so we had a dedicated docent for the two of us, and he was excellent. The house is essentially the last of the gilded age mansions in Binghamton, and is beautifully preserved. Plenty to see, and many interesting stories and anecdotes about the previous owners.

This mansion museum is well worth the price of the inexpensive admission. We were treated to a very informative tour. Reservations are required right now; but it is pleasant to have the tour guide all to yourself. We didn't feel rushed. The tour was about 45 mins. to an hour. If you love history or architecture his place is a must-see. Some parts are handicapped accessible, bathrooms are available, there is bottled water for sale and a gift shop. Plenty of free parking, too. This is a place I would re-visit.

Our guide is Joe and he is so nice and told us a lot of stories of the mansion. We love this tour. Currently they only allow one family or related parties in one tour for the protocol reason. We are so happy to join the tour. The admissions is very reasonable. $8 adult and $6 students. We booked online in advance.
