“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

The museum house is quite expansive. Well worth the cost of the tour. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas. So much history under one roof. I'd definitely go back and highly recommend.

“Nice tour”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

It was an interesting tour of this old home and how it was preserved and restored in some cases. You learn a lot about life before the Iphone! LOL - would definitely recommend along with the trolley tour

“Fun visit during the holidays”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We visited the estate today and it was good fun. During the Christmas season the tour guides role play as if they were the inhabitants of the estate. It was quite amusing and a fun way to learn about holiday traditions and the way of life in that era. Plus the home is beautiful and in excellent condition.

“Halloween Ghost Tour”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We went here for a Haunted Mansion tour. Unfortunately the local Fire Blue Lighter inspector gave them a hard time so they were unable to decorate as much. It was still a lot of fun!

“Holiday visit”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

We took the trolley to the estate. Along the way, we saw the Christmas lights throughout Cape May. The Estate was decorated beautifully in the Victorian style. It was a lovely evening.
