Take the house tour. It’s something you’ll not see anywhere else. An amazingly designed and decorated home for the rich and famous. The grounds are amazing. Everything has been perfectly maintained and manicured.

There are really two Sunnylands. One is a newish public garden and mini-museum, while the other is the magnificent estate once owned by the Annenberg family. The former is easy to visit. The latter is not.

You must follow in the internet reservation process to get oneof the limited spots for the tour of the estate, but it is worth it.

The house tour and the visitor centre could both be taken by wheelchair, however there's a golf cart that transports you between the two. As long as you wouldn't have a problem getting into the cart, you should be fine. The... More
