Interesting house museum, though the tour route left you at times a little confused about the actual layout - house doubled in size early in its life plus a major interior alteration, so at times you wanted a schematic. You cover a lot of ground, both in terms of family history and objects (many original - last surviving daughter lived there until 1981). Possibly because of that there was a t times both an information overload, but a dearth of knowledge beyond tour training as well about certain objects. No matter really. I'd have liked the lady at reception for the tour itself - our guide was a little less than enthusiastic and probably at the end of a very long day - in need of a beer (and a shower lol). Aside from the gift shop stock, I would call this more of a home for socialite women (the brother married rich and moved away), than a home of historically socially significant women.
