  • My second time visiting. Went with my brother who lives out of state. He enjoyed it. It’s a small castle though. I didn’t like that people kept touching the walls and wallpaper though. We were told that the gold foil wallpaper in one of the rooms cost $90k to replace yet the guide and everyone else kept touching it. Good way to quickly ruin it again with our oils. It’s a cool place though and the history behind it is well researched.
  • The tour of Joslyn Castle was a great educational experience. The tour guide we had was very knowledgeable of the castle's history and architecture. Definitely glad I went.
