The guided tour is so delightful. It is an added cost to your admission, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The tour guides play the characters in the historical story and they do a great job.

Nice tour of the mansion. Staff was friendly and helpful. The attempts to take you back in time was cute, but also a bit corny. The maritime and natural history exhibits were interesting. The planetarium was okay. Note that it doesn't open till noon.

Good shows, opportunity to look through their telescope and educational displays. The museum and beautiful setting also make it worth a visit.

About 45 minutes- 1 hour. But you can tour the grounds at you leisure. And there is a planetarium and a small natural history museum also.

Hi. No you may not take any photos inside the mansion. I was told that the flash from your camera or phone , over time will harm the items inside the mansion. However outside you may take as many photos as you wish.
