    We enjoyed the many interesting items that were displayed in the house. The self guided tours using a push button devise in each room gave us a lot of time to just look around at our own pace. The staff were very nice and answered all of our questions. Going there was recommended by a fellow tourist. The cost of $5.00 was very reasonable for us senior citizens.

    Very interesting tour of this beautiful home. It's like visiting a version of Downton Abbey in America. The only small drawback is that the tours are self guided and not staggered enough to allow you to see the house without other groups intermingling which on occasion was distracting when trying to listen to the recordings.

    I first visited the Whalehead Club in 1997 or so when it was open to the public but not yet restored, and it was enchanting even then. It was great to see it in its full glory. The audio tour was really interesting and engaging (I get bored with that sort of thing, typically), and included nice historical tidbits and sound effects. My boyfriend and I were so glad we took the time to see this beautiful place!
