Night at the Museum

October 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

This is your night to experience Glensheen – at night… for free.

 
On October 4th, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Glensheen is opening its doors to you for FREE self-guided tours and enjoyment of the 12-acre estate.
 

Enter the grounds through the Formal Entrance at West Gate just like a Congdon guest. Then, be treated to a self-guided tour through the main floor, second floor and lower levels of the mansion. This is your chance to see pieces of the collection not usually showcased… up close and personal.
 

As the tour ends, cap the night with a drink from the cash bar and a snack from food trucks. Then, take your food and drink to check out what Glensheen has in store for you on the 12-acre estate…
 

To make this experience even more spectacular, Glensheen’s iconic locations on the grounds will be highlighted in ways you haven’t ever seen before.
 

Explore the lakeside, 12-acre estate illuminated on a crisp fall night. See the picture-perfect stone arch bridge spotlighted and the mansion’s lakeside facade dramatically lit.
 

Guests will receive a punch card when they arrive, outlining all the must-see stops. Turn in your completed punch card to be entered to win a free Premier Tour for four!
 
Tickets to tour the mansion will be distributed on a first-come, first served basis beginning at 6:00 pm. Tour capacity allows 15 people to enter the mansion every five minutes. Each ticket will be marked with a specific entry time. The last tour entry will be at 9:00 pm. Depending on attendance, not all visitors may be able to tour the inside of the mansion; however, ALL visitors are encouraged to explore the grounds and other buildings lit up and alive with action.
