First of all, let me say the half day we gave this attraction did not give it justice by any means. The grounds are huge at 225 acres (maybe it was 250) and one cannot possibly take in the gardens, library and art museum without spending several days. Passing through from out of state did not give us this luxury. Tours are given by volunteers and we were fortunate to walk in as one was just starting. That was 2 hours well worth our time. Another tour was just starting in the art museum as we entered. The Huntington volunteers are well versed in their subjects and give a worthwhile overview of their subject matter. The gardens are magnificent and the history behind the "estate" fascinating as well. Be sure to take the stroll to the Huntington Mausoleum.
