Treat isn't the right word, when I walked up the drive and into the cool wooded area it felt like I had been holding my breath for days and didn't even know it. The quiet and coolness of the woods calmed down my entire being....More

The gardens are fabulous; the property is very beautiful and the collection is really interesting. The owner's story (Marjorie Merriweather Post) is fascinating. I did both the garden and the mansion docent lead tours and they were absolutely worth it. The docents were very knowledgeable...More

The mansion is spectacular and houses collections of so many wonderful objects. The history of the Post family is interesting and inspiring. The real show stopper is the grounds and the different gardens planted there. I spent an hour wandering through them and enjoyed every...More

There's lots to see at this attraction. The mansion, with its priceless collections is very interesting as are the gardens and other exhibits. I did feel the cafe was rather over-priced - $8:80 for a bottle of beer seems rather like gouging!!

Lavish collections of artwork, with special attention to Russian pieces, including icons. Absolutely gorgeous gardens. Do not miss the orchid greenhouse! We had a light lunch in the cafe....More

Marjorie Merriweather Post had a most interesting life and her estate reflects that. The Russian artifacts are beautiful and the gardens were glorious!

Beautiful grounds, gardens and mansion belonging to Marjorie Meriweather Post, this estate showcases some of the most beautiful Russian and French artifacts. What is fascinating is that this was truly a residence in many of our lifetimes. A donation is requested, but audio/headphones are free...More

A beautiful place to spend the day. The Museum includes amazing 18th and 19th century French and Russian porcelain, ceramics and dinnerware, including many pieces that belonged to the Russian tsars (emperors and empresses). The gardens are gorgeous, especially right now (late April) with all...More
