  • What a lovely and awesome experience!! Was greeted by Morena, very warm, friendly and well informed host. Her knowledge of this historical property is on point. Her spirit is representative of this house and beyond. I was lucky enough to be there when Paul, a historian of this house ( and so much more in terms of New York History) guided me with a personal tour. Paul was able to answer EVERY question I asked and also teach me things I didn't know about the times then... and now. What a valuable experience...More should know and come to visit this museum, both kids and adults Its a unique New York experience" back in time" that reflects our " now in time"
  • A nice place to go if you are in the area. Great for a date or with family. You can learn a bit of history with a self guided tour. It's not to big so you don't have to spend too much time there. Hours are a bit limited, so check before you go. You can also make a reservation ahead of time. Affordable $5 for adults and free for kids under 12 years old. You can enjoy the park afterwards. Food choices in the area are limited.
