I really enjoyed our visit on May 14th. Though, only two or three flowering plants were in bloom, the design of it's yard and gardens, it's trails, it's fountains, it's rocky water runoff ditches that flow into the Bayou were all absolutely beautiful (aka b** a**). The interior of the mansion is a perfect match to the yards. Very interesting antiques and collection, and my favorite part... Beth (i really hope i remember her name correctly)... She is the sweetest "young lady" I've ever encountered at any museum. As she heard me talking about the items in the Murphy Room, she walked out from where she was, the Massachusetts Room, to greet us. After some long enjoyable conversation about the many items and the history and about ourselves a bit, she told me i was (one of) her favorite quests. Well, she was my favorite too. She even invited me to look into the classes for becoming a docent. Very interesting, but i know my schedule would never allow, so long as i have to make a living, or rather, until i don't. Don't forget to see and read the history on the walls of the ticketing building.
Amazing landscaped gardens and beautiful fountains to see and enjoy. The mansion has incredible furnishings and paintings, so much history to admire. A very nice and peaceful way to spend your time.
The gardens are lovely. The azaleas were not at their best when we arrived, but they were still beautiful. Each room depicts a different era and is packed with fascinating objects. Our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. I wouldn't take small children on the tour of the house.
What an absolute hidden gem in Houston! The gardens were beautiful and the house was absolutely amazing. The grounds are also spread out which limits the number of people close to you. The only downside is that it gets hot and there are plenty of mosquitoes. I highly recommend this place.
The gardens alone are worth visiting just to stroll through. Even if you aren't a history buff I strongly recommend you also do a house tour; for $11 it's entirely worth it! The house has an incredible collection of historied items and the rooms are just incredible to look at. Staff are phenomenal! When my phone couldn't do the audio tour they gave me a printed version. One of the staff even gave some fascinating background on some of the silver items, and showed us the Collections' original newspaper of the Boston Massacre (which is in good shape considering its age)! If you're vacationing on a budget, I strongly recommend visiting this place!
