5+ years since I've been here and it's now basically a self guided tour. There's a lot of information on the tour audio, you'd be missing something if you don't utilize it. Because you can spend more time in the rooms, I think on the whole a better experience. Even with social distancing it was not crowded enough that you couldn't basically have a 'room' to yourself, or go back and do closer inspection once others had moved through. As before, this is a series of period pieces - Wintetheur at 1/2 scale and less cluttered. Chock full of Early American pieces up through 2nd Empire and a little beyond. You may encouter a docent or two - I found one on the second floor who was most willing to spend a few moments and impart some amusing info Margaret Thatcher's visit. I Imagine the gardens in season are something to see. Be sure to allow enough time for exhibits in the ticketing hall as well.

Nice quite area, well kept and a lovely place to walk around and enjoy nature. Many volunteers were cutting off dead flowers and were friendly and willing to answer questions while we were there. Lovely little gift shop.

My friend and I decided to explore this place. For about $13, we were given access for a self guided tour of the house and gardens. There is a lot to explore and you need maybe 3 hours to explore the majority of it if you walk at a decent pace. On the third Sunday of every month, it's free admission. Enjoy!
