October Open House Weekends
No tour needed! Enjoy the decor at your own pace!
New by popular demand during our busiest time of the year, Lyndhurst will be open this Autumn season with an “Explore at Your Own Pace” event on select weekends in October. Visitors can walk through the mansion without a guided tour, view the seasonal decorations at their own pace, and take in the wonders of the historic mansion.
Throughout October, you will see the majestic vestibule and entrance hall, reception room, parlor, library, and the sumptuous Victorian dining room – all decorated with seasonal trimmings for the Autumn Season! The second floor, which centers around the grand Picture Gallery, is not decorated and visitors can see those spaces in all their traditional splendor.
For those wanting to see the mansion and the beautiful seasonal decorations, this is the better option than the Halloween themed nighttime performances, as the focus is on the many Gothic Revival furnishings we bring out of storage and display during October only. This open house is appropriate for children of all ages.
Tickets: Tickets for these weekends are for general admission with timed entry. You may enter the mansion at the time frame of your chosen time slot. The mansion closes at 5 PM.
For times when online sales have sold out, limited tickets will be available for purchase on-site on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be a wait if the mansion is at capacity. Refreshments and shopping are available in the Welcome Center while you wait. Or take the time to explore the decorated landscape outside the Mansion.
