The grounds are beautiful even if you don't go to the museum. The museum is a bit pricey but very informative. The house is pretty cool, especially if your into the period decor and clothing. Lots of neat events to watch out for; for kids and adults.
Loved this place. The house tour was great. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. The museum was interesting and had lots of cool stuff to look at. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful.The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is, I would have liked to see the 3rd floor of the house even if its not restored. You also are not permitted to take pictures.
