I recommend taking the 1-1.5 hour guided tour. That's the only way you get inside the house and kitchen. Check the website for tour times. I recommend getting there about an hour prior to the tour and go inside the exhibit at the Visitor's Center...More

There is handicapped parking and the area is generally flat for easy access, although there are steps to the second floor of the mansion.
