Great tours given by the docents, who obviously love the house very much. The amount of decorative detail in the house is really mind blowing - unfortunately though, you can't take pictures indoors.

Our tour lasted about 45-60". I guess it depends on the numbers of questions the docents get during the tour. The size of the group would have a bearing on that too, as it takes longer to maneuver the group through the house.
