See Lyndhurst mansion transformed into an extravagant wonderland of holiday splendor. Described as one of the “Ten Best Historic Holiday Tours” by USA Today, Lyndhurst goes all-out during the holiday season, filling the mansion with elaborate tableaus of décor, which change every year. Dozens of Christmas trees are expertly decorated and designed to complement the elegant period furnishings within the rooms of the house. During this month only, our curators bring out rarely seen items that belonged to Lyndhurst’s former owners, the Goulds. This is a once-a-year opportunity to see many of the Goulds’ glittering possessions that are usually tucked away in our archives.
Tours are offered every hour from 10 am to 4 pm, Thursdays through Mondays. Tours last approximately one hour.
Please know that Mansion Tours are a one-hour discussion of history, architecture, and art, and may not be entertaining to young children. Families with children are encouraged to attend our Holiday Opening Weekend, where visitors can walk through at their own pace without a guided tour.
