Mansion tours are perfect for groups interested in history, architecture, and design. Focused on the Vanderbilt living quarters, these tours showcase the antiques Vanderbilt collected during his lifetime. Guests will see more than 15 rooms, carefully preserved to their Jazz Age grandeur, and learn about the complex history of the Vanderbilt family.
For more adventurous groups, this tour is a must! This tour will take your group through the three historic museum buildings on the estate, where you will learn about Mr. Vanderbilt’s expeditions around the world during which he collected the thousands of natural history specimens and cultural artifacts highlighted on the tour.
