PROS: plenty of parking; nestled amidst other smaller but still interesting mansions ; nice docent; the first floor is about the mansion, the 2nd and 3rd floor are natural history exhibits. CONS : none. 45 min stop, worth it to see the other neighborhood houses.

I attended a string quartet concert during an Arts Festival within the last year. I had not been here for a couple years, and was PLEASANTLY surprised at the exhibits, atmosphere, and the ambiance. So perfect for a small wedding (if that's your thing!)
