I was quite surprised to find out the tour had taken over an hour. Unlike some other tours this house is filled with the original contents of the house. The first tour starts at 11:20.

Asa Packer was one of the five richest men in the world - a fortune made in coal - and his fully furnished home can be toured. All of the furnishings are original. The tour through the house is interesting, but there is no photography...More

My 11-year-old liked the tour but found it to be long and boring. Promise ice cream afterward for good behavior. Bribery is amazingly effective in such circumstances.
