Night at the Museum
October 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This is your time to enjoy the mansion – at night… for free. On October 13th, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Glensheen is opening its doors to you for FREE self-guided tours.
Enter the estate through the Formal Entrance at West Gate just like a Congdon guest. Then enjoy a self-guided tour through the main floor, second floor and lower levels of the mansion.
In addition, this is a 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 a cash bar in the lower level and a snack from food trucks on the estate. 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 bridge spotlighted and all of the lakeside of the mansion 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!
Parking is first come, first serve. Please carpool, walk, or bike to Glensheen. The parking lot will fill quickly. Please refer to the city’s street side parking regulations.
Bring cash for food and beverage purchases.
Tickets to tour the mansion will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Tours will allow 15 people in the mansion every five minutes. Depending on attendance, not all visitors may be able to tour the inside of the mansion within the 6:00-9:00 time frame, but the grounds and other building spaces will still be lit up and alive with action.
Please note that this event involves excessive walking and several flights of stairs in the mansion. There are few places to sit and rest along the way. Please be mindful of these factors when choosing to attend Night at the Museum.
