Mansion Tours

The Mansion’s elegant holiday decorations delight visitors every year. Every room, decorated by local designers, decorators and garden clubs, offers visual delights – wreaths, garlands, ornaments, and beautifully wrapped gifts beneath lighted trees. Daytime tours are offered at 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00. Tickets can be purchased at the door: $5 per person, plus general admission – $7 for adults, $6 for seniors 62 and older and students with ID.

Twilight Tours

Special evening tours of the Mansion are given on the evenings of Friday-Sunday, December 26-28, from 7:00 through 9:00 p.m. This is the only time of the year the Vanderbilt family’s private living quarters can be seen at night. Hot chocolate and cookies are included. Admission at the door: $10 for adults, $9 for students and seniors (62 and older), and $5 for children 12 and under.

Planetarium Holiday Schedule

Planetarium shows: Friday-Tuesday, December 26-30, at 12:00, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00 and 4:00 p.m., and on Friday-Saturday, December 26-27, at 8:00 and 9:00 p.m.

Seasonal shows of special interest:

Season of Light explores the astronomy of the winter skies, and the historic, religious and cultural celebrations of the holiday season – including Christian, Jewish, Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican and Hopi. The Longest Night: A Winter’s Tale represents a new advance in full-dome planetarium video storytelling that seamlessly combines live-action video of life-sized puppets with 3-D animation. This timeless fable of courage, generosity and renewal follows a young girl’s quest to save her village.
