What spectacular building, the craftsmanship, skill, insightfulness, and art that went into making this place is on the scale. If you want to know what the American Dream is and what it means to be an American then this domes it all up.

Enjoyed the audio tour. Lots of flights of stairs to climb so be prepared. Great stories of the rich and famous of the past. Heard this place is worth over 100 million today.

Having been a museum professional, I'm picky about museum experiences -- but this was really well done. The house, of course, is an incredible time capsule of the gilded age... and the tour does a remarkable job of offering "enough" info about everything and then...More

The tours are self guided and plan on at least one hour or more; more if you have time. So beautiful!

The Breakers completes our Vanderbilt house tour circuit with Marble house and the Biltmore being the other homes owned by the three sons. I think this was my favorite. One can imagine the opulent parties and meals that we enjoyed in their summer home. If...More
