“Great time with family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

What an amazing place to visit. We were two adults and 4 children and all were equally interested. It helped that our tour guide was amusing and very good and keeping our attention! My 8 and 7 year old daughters keep talking about it. I would like to go back in the spring or summer to see the grounds when it's not freezing outside. I would recommend the visit to anyone.

“Landmark Vanderbilt Home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We were here recently for a wedding photo-shoot. We did not have time to revisit the museum, and the planetarium is being renovated now (August 2012). I do remember that the museum contained a collection of nautical specimens left by the Vanderbilt estate. You can tour the house and grounds and visit the planetarium.
