“Good slice of life of rich history”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Collection is far from best but it is charming and warm in character. Since the admission is already sky high, splurge $5 on the docent tour and get a nice decent background on the decoration mania.

“Beautiful mansion”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We had been here once before, but a large portion was closed for renovation at that time. This trip the entire house was open for viewing. We took both the basic docent tour and the private areas tour. It was well worth the extra price. We were able to view every room in the mansion as well as partake of the view from the tower. What a spectacular view from the top! The painted ceilings, furnishings, architecture filled with details, and the view over the water is amazing. The Ringlings left their winter residence to the state of Florida and it is definitely worth a visit.
