What an experience! The grounds near Oldfields - the original Lilly House, have been transformed into a phenomenal light show for the holiday season. The large front lawn dances to the sounds of the Nutcracker while the lights not only change color but pattern. Have...More

The grounds are amazing for families to walk. Beautiful area and lots of room for kids to run. While the inside maybe isn’t ideal for kids the grounds are free and you can come back on a date without the kids.

The museum's best collection started with a family collection that ranges from medieval to impressionist. This collection is worth a significant portion of your time! There is also an interesting contemporary collection upstairs if you have more time. Sad I missed the sculpture garden. Well...More
