This place is really super cool. What an off the beaten path kind of activity! My hubby and I had a lot of fun exploring this mansion. They started us off with a little video about the place, then set us loose on the 4th floor. We were allowed to wander to our heart€™s content. The place is filled with an amazing collection of stuff that's eclectic and fascinating to shuffle through. We started to forget to search for hidden compartments, as we were just too busy checking out the 70+ rooms, all decorated differently and some in really eccentric ways! Even if you don’t care to step back in time, or wander through a living museum, getting lost and trying to figure your way through the maze-like warren of connecting rooms is fun. Seriously, the only way I can think to describe this place is part Winchester Mystery House (in CA), part antique store, part museum. It was probably our favorite activity on the trip we took to Washington. So eclectic, quirky & unusual, you won'€™t regret it. There'€™s nothing quite like it!

3rd time I've visited the Mansion, bringing different friends each time. This time was the best. Adding the video prior to exploring is great. It's difficult to explain all the nuances adequately, so the video is very helpful in doing that. Reubin our host was awesome. Another gentleman arriving later was awesome also. It's good to understand the concept of the hidden doors better, thanks to our hosts. We actually found more than originally thought when including stained glass & closets. We spent hours leisurely exploring the first 3 floors, took a champagne break, then finished the tour with the lower level. Great way to spend a few hours on a cold, winter Saturday. Visiting the Mansion never disappoints.
