I've visited Wilton many times,and I have always enjoyed it. Michelle Erickson has an exhibit of her ceramics through October, 2016, so this review is limited to a visit including that exhibit. The ceramics wre all contemporary and quite edgy because of Michelle's interest in current political situations and events. The excellent tour we went on explained each of the... More

This beautiful 1750s home was saved by the Colonial Dames and moved to this site in 1934. It has beautiful paneling and historic furniture. Washington and Lafayette both stayed in this house. A very informative tour by Tom Mitchell who provided a wealth of information about the house and Richmond. Admission is $10. They are members of the North American... More

Great collection of 17th and 18th century furniture. Excellent guide named Tom. Been on Antique Road Show with priceless pieces. Way under rated compared to other Richmond sites.

I love the home and the furnishings. Really period accurate. The parking can be a bit crowded when there is a group going through but, nothing too bad. The tour guides are really good. They knoe their stuff.

10 bucks for me and 6 bucks for my daughter and we got an awkward private tour of the house. It was disappointing but we gave to money more as a donation than an entry. They need the visitors...but they need a little more personality to make me want to recommend it.

One of two pre-Revolutionary War houses in the country with all of its original wood paneling! We had a fine tour with a good docent who answered all of our questions. It contains fine paintings and beautiful furniture. It's well worth an hour's visit.

I have no problems finding this home. It is at the end of the street of the neighborhood. In front of the house there is a roundabout. There are many places for parking. Tours start at 10 a.m and they last 45 minutes. We started the tour on the outside of the home by the front door and then moved... More

I love touring historic houses around Virginia and it was a pleasant surprise to stumble upon this one. In addition to tours they also have a music series Jammin on the James in the summer that makes for a great way to spend the afternoon with a picnic.

The guide on this tour is extremely knowledgeable and funny providing anecdotes as well as a history of the home. Both the building and grounds are beautiful and you get to see every room. The antique road show recently filmed here and there are still a few items being showcased/highlighted from their stay.
