  • Recently had an event at the mansion's ballroom. It is a beautiful space. While you have to provide everything but the tables & chairs, the staff worked with me to get all my decorations and dessert, plates, napkins, etc up to the top floor. It really is a blank canvas that you can make as formal or informal as you wish. Everyone had a great time, and then spent some time wandering around the rest of the mansion and museum.
  • Walked through when the Christmas trees were set up. Definitely very informative and interesting to see all the different countries and the decor they use. The train display was amazing, some serious effort was put into that setup that can't be ignored. Highly recommend getting a guided tour to fully appreciate the history of the house. We didn't get the tour and ended up not being that impressed but historical locations aren't high on our visit list and we had a 2 year old who wouldn't have lasted.
  • Very cool attraction to visit whether you are coming in from out of town or a local. There's a famous Christmas tree exhibit every year, several photography and art exhibits and a massive model train that showcases historical parts of the Southern Tier, perfect for adults and children alike. My favorite part of the museum is the planetarium, the shows there are fascinating and the staff is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. Worth checking out!
  • We come every Christmas. We love the Christmas Tree Forest, the train display and all of the beautiful rooms in the mansion. The art is just an added bonus.
  • Great local museum with something for everyone! Love the Christmas trees and the model trains.
