Rosecliff, Newport

4.2
#2 of 11 in Museums in Newport
Having served as a setting in films like "High Society" and "The Great Gatsby," Rosecliff stands out among the opulent mansions of Newport. Take a self-guided tour of the home at your own pace and choose between what type of information you would like to hear. For example, after listening to basic information about the room, you can choose to learn about the architecture, specific furnishings, or life in the Gilded Age. Walk up the famous heart-shaped staircase and enjoy the views of the grounds outside. Photography isn't permitted inside the mansion.

  • Worth the visit and they as the other mansions have a hearing device for self guided tours. Each mansion brings you a different perspective of how life was in the Gilded Age in Newport.  more »

  • This mansion is smaller in size when compared to The Elms or Th Breakers. There is a patio with huge pots and great view of Atlantic ocean. This is the best part of this tour.
  • The architecture stands leaps and bounds ahead of the actual experience. As this mansion was refurbished multiple times, the majority of the mansion is not open to the public. While the backstory is intriguing, I would rather read it online then spend the money to visit in person.
  • Well maintained but A little small. The tour took about 20-30 mins. Very pretty though..
  • Super rude girl working Saturday. Piece of art I really liked was behind a door I peeked through and touched the door. I don't mind following rules, but don't need super rude attitude. House was least interesting of all mansions anyway. Employee ruined experience. And what's with the art exhibit that's from the 70s throughout the whole place. Place of history ruined.
  • Rosecliff, although smaller than the other epic homes in Newport, is still enormous relative to any other regular home. It has a beautiful patio with grand views of the ocean. The tour provides an excellent tablet player that was very easy to navigate. With this tablet, you can walk at your own pace and enjoy the home as you wish. Free, convenient parking. This home is well done and well presented.
