  • Cars, flowers, history, and toys, something at this pace for everyone. Sit in a model T, ride a carousel, play games, smell the flowers. Fun visit and staff was welcoming and helpful.

  • A must see Estate.
  • What a magical place. I wish we could have stayed longer. If you're in the area this is A MUST SEE!! It was so inspiring to immerse yourself in such natural and man made beauty. I love the detail that goes into every inch of this place from the children's playground to the gardens to the Shaker inspired structures. It's a one of kind museum and I'm so glad we got to see it. Thank you to everyone that makes the museums and gardens possible.
