  • As part of a combo ticket, my wife and I were able to visit the Bishop's Palace and the Moody Mansion at a reduced price. This mansion was owned by the Moody Family and the furniture and artifacts...

  • After watching the series “The Guilded Age” this home took us back in time. You could truly imagine the lifestyle the family led. This is a beautifully maintained elegant home. The self guided tour...

  • Mandy was the best tour guide! She was very knowledgeable about the mansion and was able to answer every question I asked. There was lots of great history to learn about here! I'm glad I made this one of my stops.
  • Neat place. Reasonably priced for what you get. Interesting history. More details on the house itself would be nice. Eg. There is a bidet and a shower, very curious how they got the water pressure back then. There's no space on the roof for a gravity tank. The electronic tour guide didn't mention much about the house and the person working didn't know. Personal preference, we were more interested in the house/items in it than the people.
