You can enjoy the whole house (and gallery) in roughly 45 minutes. It's very well done and they have preserved the house and it's "atmosphere" beautifully. Don't forget to see the basement and it's "Rec Rooms", they are fabulous!

Many of the paintings are accompanied by books that were written in the same era, showing the parallels between literature and visual art. The rose garden outside the museum is worth the price of admission.
