  • Today was my first time visiting and it was a wonderful experience, I would go back again. Elyse was a terrific guide and really knew a lot about the property and was able to answer all of the group’s questions. Due to Covid we were unable to go into the interiors but the tour takes you around the entire property through five different types of gardens. The palm tree forest was my personal favorite, I believe it’s the largest collection anywhere in California. This is also the oldest estate in Beverly Hills and for that alone it’s worth a visit. Parking can be a little tight in the parking guest lot which is towards the back of the property and the driveway leading up to it is very narrow so if you have an especially wide or tall car (especially a large truck or suburban size SUV) you may want to park on the street. It’s incredibly beautiful inside and funded mainly by the neighboring residents of Beverly Hills. It would be nice if they let you free roam so you could sit and enjoy the property solo but I understand how that would be hard logistically wise. Overall I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of botanical gardens, history, or Beverly Hills.
  • This is a beautiful mansion and garden located in the heart of Beverly Hills. It was the family property of the Robinson's Department Store owner, who donated it to the LA County. It's open for guided tour on select days for $15 per person. The volunteer guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and you can learn a lot about the history, the flora, and landscape of the property during the tour. No photos are allowed inside the mansion, but you can take pictures outside.
