Holiday Opening Weekend
Please read our COVID Visitor Requirements before purchasing tickets.
Returning this year, Lyndhurst will open the holiday season with an “Explore at Your Own Pace” event. During Black Friday Weekend only, visitors can walk through the mansion without a guided tour, view the holiday decorations at their own pace, and take in the wonders of the historic mansion.
See why Lyndhurst was voted one of the “Ten Best Historic Holiday Tours” by USA Today. The thematic rooms will include a Victorian Christmas, staged with traditional candles and fruits. See antique children’s toys from the Gould collection, a room dedicated to gorgeous glass Christopher Radko ornaments, and the Gilded Age dining room set for a lavish Christmas supper. The crowd-favorite upside-down tree defies gravity in the Picture Gallery. From traditions to trends, Lyndhurst celebrates the season in style and glamour.
The Gift Shop will be available at the Welcome Center while you wait.
As New York State continues to evaluate pandemic-related restrictions, Lyndhurst requires all visitors to provide proof of full Covid vaccination (14 days after the final shot) and continue to wear masks indoors at this time as a courtesy to fellow visitors and staff. Guests who are not vaccinated and children aged 2-11 who wish to join an indoor tour must provide proof of a negative COVID PCR test administered no sooner than 72 hrs. We will continue to evaluate these policies and make changes in the future, as appropriate.
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.
Entry begins promptly at the designated time.
All ticket purchases are non-refundable.
For everyone’s safety, Lyndhurst reserves the right to deny or revoke the admission of any visitor who refuses to comply with these guidelines. As in any public setting, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to COVID-19. By visiting Lyndhurst, you voluntarily assume such risks.
