One of the best days spent in California! Parents should be prepared for long walks with kids. Possbily the most qualified museum shop you can find in the US. Nice ice cream shop for the kids at main gate. Overall 5 stars! Definitely recommended!

I appreciate the gardens for what they are. The art collection is limited but the house does give a glimpse of the private rooms of a mansion at the turn of the 20th century. What I find has changed is the number of people who...More

Food is not allowed on the grounds, but when you first come in there is a small kiosk where you can buy some things (I saw some people walking around with ice cream and coffee). There are some tables there where you can eat.
