The House Museum
Our guided tour features a walk-through of the house, including three floors and 16 rooms. You’ll walk into the elaborate golden entryway designed to impress the Browns’ guests, view the library with floor-to-ceiling bookcases, experience the Browns’ private sitting area and bedrooms, and glimpse the living and working quarters of their servants. The museum’s collections include furniture, clothing, accessories, artwork, and more from the life and times of Mrs. Brown.
