Now that the Vanderbilt Mansion and its halls are decked elegantly for the season, we invite you to see the Mansion at its most magical time by taking a special Twilight Tour.
Tonight, Thursday, December 28, is the second and final night of these popular annual tours, which will be given from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for students and seniors (student ID, or age 62 plus) and $5 for children 12 and under. Hot chocolate and cookies are included. This event is a treat for visitors, and the only time of the year the Vanderbilt family’s private living quarters can be seen at night.
