This museum has closed to the public until further notice as of Friday October 21, 2016 due to budget cuts. It is hoped that an outside organization will take over the operations in the near future.

It had been a while since our last visit. We visited as part of the Garden Week tour. Each visit will be different. Didn't get to see all as they were filming Mercy Street. Fun to see what they were doing for the filming. Guide was full of great historical information.

This is an awesome attraction and very affordable. I really enjoyed our guide. He was very factual but did not try to be dominating. He let the mansion be the focal point. The PBS series "Mercy Street" is filmed here. I have not seen the show but plan to begin watching it now. Architectural features are astounding!

Finally a house that reminded me of Ashley Wilkes planation from Gone with the Wind. The guides name was Nona and she was very knowledgeable and friendly. The bathroom was incredible.

Ask questions about the secret passageways and tunnels to the river. Obviously not what everyone lived in but is illustrative of those who had a means during a time where America... More
