On the mansion tour with a Halloween twist, you will see the majestic vestibule and entrance hall, reception room, parlor, library, cabinet room, Jay Gould’s private office, and the sumptuous Victorian dining room – all decorated with seasonal trimmings for Halloween. The second floor, which centers around the grand Picture Gallery, is not decorated and visitors can see those spaces in all their traditional splendor. Our curators display special items from Lyndhurst’s vast collections exclusively for the month of October.
For those wanting to see the mansion and the beautiful seasonal decorations, this is the better option than the nighttime performances. These tours are appropriate for children of all ages.
Decorated tours begin Friday, September 30th and continue through October 31. Lyndhurst is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with the exception of Halloween, Tuesday, October 31st.
