Night at the Museum

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


This is your night to enjoy the mansion – at night… for free. On October 4th, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Glensheen is opening their 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 to come, first served. 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.

There will not be reserved tour times. Tours will be let in the mansion on timing and capacity factors. Please plan on waiting in line to tour the mansion. First tour entry will be at 6:00 pm and last tour entry will be at 9:00 pm.

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.
