Join us as we visit this Gilded Age landmark for a glimpse behind the scenes. The Backstairs Tour explores “how during the Gilded Age and beyond, the staffs at Lyndhurst functioned to provide an efficient and seamless lifestyle” for two of New York’s prominent families of the era. We will also have an opportunity to view the special Tiffany exhibit, share a brown-bag lunch, and write!
Important: the tour will include a 79-stair climb to the Observatory Tower and a 99-stair descent to the basement (sounds like Hogwarts, right?), so please come prepared for the activity.
Bring a brown-bag lunch and your writing materials.
**Please register! We need to confirm the tour a week in advance. If we don't have enough registrations by then, we will cancel and refund your fee. Thanks.
