We went early on a Saturday. There was very little traffic at that time. We decided to drive and there was plenty of available parking at the museum.
We picked up the tickets inside, then waited for our tour time to be called. We were told to feel free to look at the gardens while we waited. The property is beautiful. The homes are well maintained and you can feel the history.
The guide we had was very young, but very educated on the property and its history. We were very pleased with the details he provided during the tour.
The only bad part was the tour guide behind our group. I felt like she was trying to rush us out, always right on our heels. At one time, (we were in the back of the group), I had to remind her that our group hadn't passed through yet.
Note, there is a secret staircase that you may enter. It's a tough squeeze for anyone over 175 pounds. There is an alternate way upstairs, but if you can do it, and are not claustrophobic, please take the secret stairs!
