Holiday Classic Mansion Tour 2023
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. This is a once-a-year opportunity to see many of the glittering possessions that are usually tucked away in our archives.
This one-hour tour visits the main two floors of the mansion.
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 Roam-on-your-Own Weekend on December 30 and 31, where visitors can walk through at their own pace without a guided tour.
All visitors must have a pre-purchased ticket to enter the Mansion. A limited number of tickets are available for each time slot and tickets do sell out.
Please present printed tour tickets or have them available on your smartphone to show to Welcome Center staff when checking in for your time.
All ticket purchases are non-refundable.
Extreme Weather Policy: Welcome Center staff will do their best to give notice if tours are interrupted, delayed, or canceled due to extreme weather. If Lyndhurst cancels your tour for weather-related issues, we will endeavor to reschedule. If rescheduling a tour canceled by Lyndhurst is not possible, we will offer visitors a refund for their tickets.
