Frank, our tour guide was great and knowledgeable. He thoroughly explained all the different rooms of the mansion and the history behind them. It was a very enjoyable trip back in time of some of the history of Binghamton and would highly recommend it.

Phelps Mansion is a wonderful depiction of a time gone by-the architecture and design is absolutely gorgeous. I havent been there in years, but as a teenager actually had the opportunity to clean for the caretakers (back in the 70's)-awesome place

The tour guide was amazing. The staff on a while was friendly and very welcoming! I would recommend that anyone... More

With hopeful hearts on New Years Eve we arrived at 4:15pm to tour the mansion. Chelsea, our tour guide was knowledgeable and understanding of time constraits (they closed at 5!). She gave us a wonderful tour--showcasing her knowledge and passion for history. By the second luxe room I had goosebumps from all the awe inspiring beauty to behold in the... More

This was our first visit to the Mansion even though we've lived in the area all our lives. Joe, the House Manager, gave us an indepth, very interesting tour. We were welcomed by the other volunteers and enjoyed our visit very much. Half-jokingly suggested they open the house for dinners and/or overnights! Lovely!

Tour guide Joe was wonderful and full of information as he took our family of 6 (ages 9-42) through this amazing mansion. The beauty, stories, and history was appealing to all of us- even the one that didn't want to go!
