  • A lot more interesting than I thought. Fun free things also available
  • They have very knowledgeable people doing the tours and they have lots of great information and stories about the buildings. Well worth the visit.
  • We only caught the free displays, but the seeing has a neat small village feel.
  • This treasure is hidden away in a rural part of Wisconsin. Local docents provide tours and in the summer, actors and actresses can attend a weeklong workshop with well know celebrities to hone their craft. While visiting stop in to the local bakery or enjoy dinner at one of the few town restaurants.
  • A National Historic Landmark, Ten Chimneys is a gem hidden where no one would think to look. Located in Genesee Depot, just south of I-94 and west of Milwaukee, WI, it served as home for Broadway actors Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt and country retreat for a host of Broadway, Hollywood, and international talent. Anyone interested in theatre will love the estate tour. Our exceptional volunteer docent illuminated decades of history at Ten Chimneys on a two-hour walking tour of the estate. The estate is open to the public seasonally, roughly May-November. The visitor center appears accessible to all ages. If you plan to tour the estate, the staff strongly recommends reservations, considerable walking and stair climbing are involved, and it's not a tour for children under 12. In addition to tours and interpretation, Ten Chimneys Foundation hosts a variety of programs target for theatre students and professionals, and others open to the public.
