    The 'Mansion' is definitely a must see when visiting Norwalk. It is famous for its Dark Shadows appearance in the TV series but there is nothing dark about this magnificent mansion. It is a museum in ...  more »

    They offer a 45min and a 90min tour. We went for the 90min because we didn't want to kill another hour and a half wandering around. The volunteers are very knowledgeable about their stuff. Depending o...  more »

    My wife and I were married here on New Year's Eve. We highly recommend this as an event venue. In addition to being a gorgeous space, the staff were incredibly flexible and accommodating.

    This is a fascinating landmark of American history. This American industrialist's mansion is breathtaking. You simply have to go and see it for yourself.

    It was so beautiful inside this mansion. When I went there was a special event so they were only showing the first floor, so it's my mission to go back soon to see the rest of this gorgeous building. Probably not great for the kids, but teenagers and up can appreciate this kind of thing.

    Read reviews online before deciding that this would be one of the stops while visiting family in CT. Drove up from Pittsburgh Halloween weekend and was disappointed to hear it wasn't haunted right when we arrived (although reviews online said it was). The "haunted" tour they took us on while alright was alright, but for out of town travelers we didn't learn really anything about the historical building at all which was a little disappointing. It ended up just being ghost stories. Not what my group expected but still okay.
