We enjoyed seeing the Carlyle House. The visit started with a decent movie introducing the house and the family. We had a guide who was well-informed and able to answer most of our questions. (I was a bit disturbed about his calling the house slaves 'servants.' If you aren't free, and you aren't being paid, you're a slave, not a servant.) The restoration does not all look completely accurate and they could stand to update some aspects of their presentation. But, on the whole, it is an interesting site and well worth visiting.
