Very good, one of the place we take visitors to! The tour shows how the very rich lived before "displaying your wealth was in style.

I've been thru several mansion tours within our state as well as the greatest in New Port Rhode Island and this one is well worth the time. The mansion is truly a time capsule. Our guide was wonderful, shared so much info and did it with such energy. When in town, you'll be sorry if you miss this tour!

A very interesting tour, one of its kind. Unique insight into the lines and time that was so important in the history of this area. The home is basically left the way that the family had once lived in it, which is fascinating. The stories shared were of an important and influential family who were key in the success of... More

This museum is high up on the hill, accessible from downtown Jim Thorpe. We had hiked all day and were so sore but it was worth the steep hike up! The mansion is clearly pretty on the outside but was more spectacular inside. Unlike many homes/mansions that were refurbished, almost all the pieces were original to the time period of... More

This attraction is a "must-see" when visiting Jim Thorpe. The price of the ticket alone cannot be beat! The structure is amazing and innovative for its time. Captures the beauty and essence of Jim Thorpe.

The Asa Packer Mansion is definitely a must see when visiting the beautiful quaint town of Jim Thorpe. It is immaculately preserved and brings you back to the millionaires yesteryear with all their authentic furnishings. The view from their front porch is stunning but the real treasure is touring the home and picturing their exciting lives back then in that... More
