Classic Mansion Tour
Please read our COVID Visitor Requirements before purchasing tickets.
Tour ticket holders do not need to purchase a Daily Grounds Pass, as tour tickets include grounds access.
Perfect for first-time guests, this one-hour tour covers two floors and treats visitors to a rare glimpse of the lavish decorative arts and furniture left at Lyndhurst by previous owners. The tour, which lasts an hour, visits approximately 16 rooms and involves climbing one staircase with 25-steps. You’ll visit the first floor of the mansion including the parlor, filled with furniture designed by architect A.J. Davis and the sumptuous Civil War-era dining room. The second-floor centers around the opulent Grand Art Gallery hung with an original collection of European paintings brought to Lyndhurst by the Gould family. Impressive Tiffany stained glass windows adorn the gallery and adjacent bedrooms.
Please present printed tour tickets or have them available on your smartphone to show to Welcome Center staff when checking in for your tour.
