  • Fantastic visit, wonderful tour guide, on time and answered our questions. The peacock is a symbol of wealth and affluence. The velvet upholstery is a real sign of wealth of the day. Visit this home/museum, you will be glad you did.
  • Excellent story in this house. Be prepared to climb a staircase
