  • Nice to see and hear the history of the family and the house. You get to see pretty much the whole house. We had an awesome tour guide, tons of information and very friendly.
  • Excellent local museum with national importance. The volunteers and staff are very friendly and welcoming. Admission is currently $14 for adults with a small discount for seniors and military. The house is remarkable well kept and honestly the 1 hour tour hardly does the building justice. There's even a self guided audio tour of the garden. Tours are held at the top of every hour. This museum is highly recommend and definitely worth a drive if you are in upstate New York and have a few hours to learn some history.
