This is a beautiful house and art collection. Worth a visit to see what life was like. A picture of what life is like for an art collector with unlimited funds in the early 1900s. Beautiful home and gardens and a lovely cafe.

I agree with JohnAnnCo, posted above. You can also visit their website for any changes in the pricing. Well worth every penny.
The website Hillwoodmuseum is not working. Is there another web address?
