  • Very interesting site. Casual and pleasant guides. Very little of the house open for visit and house needs better upkeep. Visitor center was closed due to staffing shortages. More money needs to go...

  • What a piece of history in such a beautiful area ! Please note that they are open on Friday/Saturday and Sunday. I invite you to check their website to have the last updates. I arrived and met with very nice Park Rangers, they were ready to answers all of my questions. The house is very well maintained and we can feel the energy and the story from the past when we get inside. You can have a booklet to guide through the visit. It’s very impressive !
  • I went during Open House New York's weekend event. That event was free. So my experience would be a little different from a normal tour. The biggest difference was that we went during the evening and the mansion was lit up by candlelight. The lighting was beautiful! Our tour guide was so informative and also funny. I went to the Grange knowing pretty much nothing about it. Learned a lot and got to take some very cool photos. The gallery on the first floor has lots of great info about Hamilton and the Grange itself. Gift shop was small but it has a variety of items. I definitely recommend visiting.
