Classic Mansion Tour
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.
As New York State continues to eliminate pandemic-related restrictions, Lyndhurst requests that all visitors continue to wear masks indoors during this transition period as a courtesy to fellow visitors and staff. We will continue to evaluate these policies and make changes in the future, as appropriate.
Please present printed tour tickets or have them available on your smartphone to show to Welcome Center staff when checking in for your tour.
All visitors must have a pre-purchased ticket to enter the Mansion. A limited number of tickets are available for each tour and tickets do sell out. If you are taking a tour, you do NOT need to purchase a Daily Grounds Pass. All ticket purchases are non-refundable.
